THE EDITOR, Sir:
As to be expected, there has been, and there will be, a variety of reasons proffered for the lightning strike that ruined racing at Caymanas Park on Sunday, October 27.
The fact that nothing of this nature has ever taken place at the facility for more than 40 years is never going to be sufficient to cause some persons to even contemplate the possibility that the event was the result of a deliberate intervention.
I am convinced that the event was an intervention by God. But I don't believe that God responded in that manner because persons were desecrating his day of worship. The disregard of Sunday or Saturday by many persons as holy days is mere reflection of their consuming hatred for things considered sacred.
Therefore, I believe that God responded at Caymanas Park because there are persons who make it a habit to defy God and everything considered holy. And they do so not realising that they are only building monuments of wickedness that will serve as their judge on that final day when all mankind stands before Almighty God for reckoning.
And to prove that the decision to have racing at Caymanas Park on Sunday is an act of defiance against God, the management of the Park will convene other Sunday racedays. Bet you!
