No one can save us but ourselves

Moleto A. Smith Jr (St Thomas, USVI resident)

Recently, I attended the funeral service of the husband of one of my employees.

He was gunned down about 3 weeks ago in Hospital Ground on St Thomas. From all accounts he was well-respected, ambitious, hard working and an entrepreneur with a passion to teach young people his trade. He was only 32 years. He leaves a wife and 3 young children. Sad. Tragic. Senseless.
