Dear Young Friend, Your Youth Matters! Yes, it does.
If you don’t mind, I would like to share a few things with you. Do you feel as if you just want to let go of this life and run away? Do you feel as if the world has placed a really heavy burden or weight on your shoulder? Maybe you feel as if you cannot trust anyone, and that if you risk opening up to someone about the things that trouble your mind, the next thing you will receive is harsh judgement, violation of your trust and a terrible breach of your personal confidence.

2017 has begun with many new developments. A new President for the United States, a new program plan on the job, new orders being signed by D.Trump, new daily news, new shocking observations as pertains to our own nations’s development. New, new new.
Amidst the newness, I suspect there is a level of trepidation that is plaguing various sectors of our world, and our citizenry here in Dominica. This, coupled with deep uncertainty of what this year will bring make it difficult for the average peace-loving, justice-seeking and carefree-world-citizen to relax and hope that all will fall in place for the good of the majority.
The Wall, the threat to hike taxes on Mexican imports, the disagreement about paying or not paying for that wall, the rumors of the CBI (Citizenship By Investment) program, the constant political noises blurring through cars, and homes tuned in to various radio stations and television channels here at home all cloud our focus.

With approximately five hours left in 2016, one cannot help but start structuring the best way to eye the new year 2017. Notwithstanding the fact that no one knows what is in store for humanity on this earth during the upcoming year, one cannot help but muster up a spirit of Hope.
One of the best ways I think a person should anticipate the new year is with a high expectation of positivism. This will enable life-giving thoughts, and responses during challenging moments. After all, every year brings with it, its own forms of trials and troubles. A spirit of positivism will constantly rejuvenate the joyful juices which lies within the faithful. Continue reading

World in major crisis! What has gone wrong? A lack of peace, with an intense increase in the presence of war is plaguing various corners of this space we call the human home. Mother earth is bawling from the deepest recesses of her belly complements the wickedness of humanity itself. Interestingly, everyone who perpetuates, and or promotes the violence believes he or she is acting justly, rightly and is pleasing the self and his or her god.
The confusion is inexplicable to the average easy-liver. The Easy-liver is someone who just wants to be allowed to live his or her life without fear and threat of being cut down innocently by some extremist. This type of individual pursues tranquility in the simple things of life, consciously avoids complications, and would like to travel the world, simply to behold the splendor of its creator.

In an instant – change! Lessons in Life
Tropical Storm Erika has certainly struck our nation beyond anything one would have fathomed prior to its arrival over Dominica. The shocking evidence of its mischief is vivid. Things will be so for a long time via the various memorabilia which will emerge, and those which have already emerged. Without decreasing the impact of the monstrosity of this weather system which has battered my homeland, I feel obligated to highlight some lessons that I am learning since Thursday 27th August, 2015.

“Fear not, for God is with you, Fear Not!” — Isaiah 41:10
The fear of pressing on amidst life’s many questionable challenges always tends to show its ugly face, when we would prefer otherwise. For some people, God is an abstract being, so a statement like the above may not stand nor hold any substance to them. For those of us who believe in a higher power, whom we call God, we hold on to this reality, that fear is never bigger than HIM.
Whatever you call HIM, if you believe in a higher, and supreme being, when fear knocks at your door like a thief, remember you are not alone. It is easy however, to feel like you are alone, like all is lost, like nothing works, or that all is falling apart. Let me remind you to steer the course because it is worth pressing on against fear and its relations. Continue reading
