Black is also a colour e.g. without light, the achromatic colour of maximum darkness. In the Caribbean white is a colour e.g. a white shirt; black is a colour e.g. a black skirt.

The seven percent tax

Lorna M. George

There is an old adage that says, “God works in mysterious ways His wonders to perform”. My brothers and sisters who send our money to their native countries via transfer money services such as Money Gram and Western Union may have felt a bit disappointed when the government put a seven percent tax on money going out of the country.

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.

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.
