This song played on the new Gospel station 92.5FM last evening. Mahalia Jackson’s ‘Soon will be done with the troubles of the world’. Today while driving around the city of New Providence we witnessed the many funerals in process and again this song came to mind. However as we drove the sight that took us was how armed police officers surrounded the Lake View cemetery. There the dead was being buried, and today in the Bahamas police must now stand guard with long machine guns and bullet proof vests in the graveyard to keep the peace. Look how violent our city has come.
