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.

Hurricane Season & Destroying us without a reason

Alred C. Frett

We survived the Beast:

Between the Border Wall, Russian Report, Brexit, EU Elections, Donald J. Trump and Theresa M. May, everyone else has been sidelined as if unimportant… Let’s avoid that trap for, as much as we have to acknowledge them, we also have lives to live and missions to be accomplished… Our Hurricane Season has started and we must prepare as if we will be once again targeted.

He bellowed with all this strength, “Segregation now and segregation forever”.

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.
