Holiday Message by Premier Andrew A. Fahie

Fellow Virgin Islanders and Residents, a pleasant good day and God’s blessings to you. The essence of Christmas is love. As we celebrate the coming of Christ, we must reflect on the fact that his presence on earth was because God loved humanity so much, that he gave us his only begotten Son.

I am somebody

Lorna M. George

I was talking to a friend the other day, and she was telling me about some unfair treatment she received from the Government. She concluded by saying, “that is when you are a nobody”.

The Public Service is not for the faint of heart

Lorna M. George

Ever since I graduated from the BVI High School, now called the Elmore Stoutt High School, I have worked for the Government of the Virgin Islands (VI). I started my long journey as a laboratory trainee at Peebles Hospital. The years were terrible and horrible years to say the least. It was here that my Christian values and morals were tested and tried.

We are all created equal

Lorna M. George

As I grew up in the [British] Virgin Islands many years ago, the norm of the day was to look down one’s nose on another based on his/her family background. Sad to say our parents and many persons of the day they not know better. Of course, we all drink and eat through our mouths and use the bathroom through our anus; however, it is hard to come to the light when we are surrounded with utter darkness.

Wrong cannot conquer right

Lorna M. George

When I graduated in 1984 and returned to Peebles Hospital to work, my stay there only lasted four months. As a result of my Christian values and my love for people I could not get involved in the wrong things I saw happening there. I refused to do what they wanted me to do. No one can make me do what is wrong. If my conscience condemns me I am not going to do it. I abhor wrong.

'We have to speak, show & act love'- Hon Wheatley

WICKHAM’S CAY II, Tortola, VI- “We are really trying to help persons who have lived among us. They have been here for some 30, some 40 years but absolutely no status. There are kids who have been born here, lived all their lives in the BVI, know no place else besides the BVI. We want to make sure that these persons feel at home. They are our wives, our cousins and so forth…We want to spread the love. We must not only speak love, we must also show and act love.”

‘We don’t want to be a Singapore or a Hong Kong’- Doug Wheatley

ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- Retired civil servant and respected talk show host Mr Doug Wheatley recently recalled that the Virgin Islands did not have a lot of money in the 1950s and 60s but there were lots of love among the people and things were going well, “and people were not hungry because we used to share. That happiness continued into the 70s.”

We must learn to live like brothers or perish together as fools

Lorna M. George

The above quote by Dr Martin Luther King Jr is so true. There was a murder committed in my village of Long Look the other day. My heart goes out to the family of the victim. We are destroying ourselves because of the hate, bitterness and hostility in our souls. Our society is saturated with hate and as result it is manifesting its ugly face as the violence we are seeing today.
