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.

Crisis in the Virgin Islands

By Lorna M. George

Turnbull, Almeania Dawson, Erlin George, Mackel Chalwell, Louis Potter, Jennie N. Wheatley, Pearl Smith, Dr Lydia Pickering, and Reynold S. ‘Ray’ O’Neal OBE. I am a bit wiser and a bit taller because I am standing on their shoulders.
