    It’s sad what the BVI see as important. What they see as a need to support or endorse. So many positive stories now and agin on our news sites yet the support of encouragement to the individual or groups is so poor. If they was involved with bad things we would have been smashing their faces. All I’m saying (it’s ok to say keep it up. Job well done. Give it your best. Thank you ect etc. we have to encourage those who’s positively striving and help push them to remain focus. Let’s start endorsing positive movements because it’s right not because or who it might or might not be.

    got to dig so deep into people's lives. Sometimes we just got to accept people as they are especially if they are making a significant and worthwhile contribution to the country.It doesn't matter where the individual from she and many more are making some positive strides in the BVI.Come on people if you can try to bring down your own what else you won't do.How can we get bigger better and greater with kind of attitude?
