  1. The Bahamas is “extraordinarily successful” in the Caribbean region. While that may be so, one must ask himself the question..The Bahamas is Extraordinarily Successful for who??

    Surely not for that elderly man who died from starvation in the 90’s from Bain Town.

    Surely not for the myriad sexually abused children in my country.

    Surely not for the many young men in various over the hill communities who struggle everyday in this dreadful war for existence.

    Surely not for the many young girls who are being prostituted on our unforgiving streets
    and giving birth to babies, some of whom are infected with HIV-AIDS and don’t even know it.
    And unknowingly spread it on a daily.

    Get real and harken to the cries of my people!
    “ECONOMIC INDEPENDENCE SHOULD BE THE SPIRIT THAT DRIVES US AS A PEOPLE, EMBEDDED IN A FIRM UNBENDING BELIEF IN CHRIST”

    Shake hands with that!
