LONG LOOK, Tortola, VI- It started around 7:30 PM on Monday, May 15, 2017 as friends, families, and dignitaries gathered at the East End/Long Look Community Centre for a candlelight vigil in remembrance of the late Shawn H. Richards aka 'Tubby.'

The 22 year old Virgin Islander was gunned down on May 6, 2017 while outside his grandmother’s home in Long Look, on the eastern end of Tortola.

Many residents came out in large numbers to send a strong signal that crime in their community must stop. The march ended at Mr Richards grandmother's home where he was shot and died a few days later at Peebles Hospital, in Road Town, the capital city.

Help us fight crime- Curnal P. Fahie

The main speaker was Apostle Curnal P. Fahie of the Transformation Church International who encouraged persons from the Long Look area to hold their heads up because despite the negative sigma, good things can also come out of Long Look..."as more than 60% of the business owners in Road Town came from Long Look.”

Mr Fahie also encouraged persons in the community who have information of Richard’s death, or any other deaths in the past, to speak up and assist the police.

Others attending the vigil march were Deputy Premier and Minister for Natural Resources and Labour and Representative for the District where the crime took place, Dr The Honourable Kedrick D. Pickering who also gave remarks, Senior Magistrate Tamia N. Richards, who is family to the deceased, and Permanent Secretary in the Premier's Office Mr Brodrick Penn.

While the autopsy has been performed on the body, no date has been announced as of publication time for the funeral for Mr Richards.

    B.I.B.L.E- Basic Information Before Leaving Earth.

    The significance of the Jesus example. This energy performed miracles, healed the sick, fed thousands with a few loafs of bread and fish- and when this energy needed support in time of need- not one “being” came forth.

    Meditate on that for a while.

    All these fractal churches in our country must put their fractal beliefs aside and rise in UNITY to fulfill this unfulfilled mission of this sacrifice made on earth for us ALL.

    We have traverse so far from who we are as a people that the empathy, encouragement and support for the least of us- has been replace with the “deadly superbug” of looking out for number one- me, mines, and my own.

    Our environment has been replaced with an energy of superficial impressions. Nothing is never what it seems.

    Until we all realized that each of us is but a part of the sum of the whole, we will continue to reap the dysfunctions of the weakest links amongst us.

    We all are reflection of the beast or angel within us and the energy we feed will become the stronger. Which energy do we intend to feed and reflect in our environment.

    We criticize/persecute/crucify those who are trying to evoke an energy of support towards a noble cause like Stacy Mather, Henderson Tittle, and others. Some may even call them crazy; one of our notorious titles for those who may think differently. But be not mistaken, unless we look at ourselves in our nakedness and genuinely decide which side of “duality” we intend to be part of- our situation would only get worse. “Our mirrors never lie.”

    I personally share, support, encourage these young men and women who reflect that which I share to see for all our young people in our community.

    Until We share: One Love, One Mind, One Heart, we will continue to reap more weeds from our gardens.

    our leaders busy chasing the United States currency and not paying enough attention to the social up keep of our country: charity begins at home; I am yet to hear from any of the 13 inside the house of assembly of any concrete plans that directly benifits us; its always some bill to protect financial services what about bill that comforts and protects our people: who is gong to visit a country that his filled with criminal behavior: which 1 of the 13 members in that house of assembly have held any district meetings to chat with the youth of this BVI yes we only meet after the crimes have been committed(make noise for a few days and back to usual business) just like the dam police(out in numbers after crimes are done but no sight of them before)....invite our young people to round table for discussion(you won't help all but try some fu(!ng thing other than talk talk after the crime done happen...poor leadership will be the downfall of this place!!!!
