It has been many, many years since my last visit to the Buccoo Reef. As a proud Tobagonian, I have always encouraged visiting friends/relatives to make the trip but just never made the time to go myself.

Let’s be real. Independence from England 55 years ago really meant a paper separation from the colonial master. We, as well as most of the other countries in the world, are not independent of any other nation.

As we celebrate the 55th anniversary of our independence and the milestones of our great country and people, we need to be cognisant of its lifeline.

As we celebrate 55 years as an independent nation we have a lot to be proud of. We have been through some difficult times as a people but we have shown resilience. We had the 1970 black power revolution, the 1990 attempted coup, murders and kidnappings to deal with during the 55 years.

We need a multi-generational approach to preserving Trinidad and Tobago for our future generations. The environment, the institutions, the culture and the opportunities that we met and benefited from must be available to others that come after we are gone.

I just cannot get that phrase out of my mind, “Right now we are borrowing money to pay public servants salaries.”

We the nationals of T&T are not true patriots to the red, white and black. This being the fifty-fifth anniversary of our Independence, what have we achieved as a progressive nation, putting on the front burner our human resource, the youth?

In middle school, Junior Alvarado often struggled with multiplication and earned poor grades in math, so when he started his freshman year at Washington Leadership Academy, a charter high school in the nation’s capital, he fretted that he would lag behind.
