A Pleasant One Today

It’s not always nasty and today I’d like to pay a special mention to Veronica Joseph. This obviously Afro Trinidadian woman has taken into her homes two young Indo Trinidadian children – a brother and sister who were poisoned by their father but survived. (The father also drank poison but succeeded in his suicide bid).

I’ve always considered my people (Trinidadian and Tobagonian people!) to not be racists as others I have seen (just loyalists who vote blindly for their party) but kudos to a woman who “saw God in every face and not race” (Dr. Morgan Job’s phrase). I salute you on your selfless gesture and all the other people who came forward to help these children.
