Priorities not in order, Madam PM
Open letter to Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar:
I, like you, am very proud of not only Keshorn Walcott for the gold medal he has won for our country, but of all the T&T athletes who played a part in the London Olympics and who have given their all to make the country proud. But the Olympics is once every four years.
What about people like Phillip Alexander, who feeds the poor every day and who works day in and day out to make a difference in our society? Or Simone de la Bastide, the woman from Wand who works hard every year to make a difference in the lives of battered women? Or Elizabeth Aleong, the president of Caribbean Kids and Families Therapy Organisation, an NGO that raises funds to help children with disabilities and rents a home to keep the NGO running? Or even the Venezuelan woman, Dianny Hernandez, who runs an NGO to help children with life-threatening illnesses in T&T?
I must say, Madam Prime Minister, that your priorities are not in order.
