What’s Trending: Shocking death of toddler

Sun, May 05, 2013 - 11:45 AM

The Nation’s Associate Editor, Sherie Holder-Olutayo takes a look at what’s trending today in Barbados.

Readers today are talking about the tragic death of two-year-old Joshua Boyce who was struck and killed by a car after a family dispute turned ugly. Our online readers weighed in on this issue.

Carl Harper: It is really sad that this toddler had to be the victim in a dispute among adults whom should have known better. Now that cooler heads prevail, everyone must be asking themselves if the quarrel was worth the eventual costs - the death of "sweet" Joshua and the possibility of someone being charged with the little boy's death and perhaps imprisonment.

Margaret Ross: My sincere condolences to Joshua's parents, family, friends and love ones. He's a sweet little boy. So sad to hear what could possibly have caused the lost of this innocent child.

Chereece Vanessa Bostic:  I pray his soul rest in peace!!! I have a son his age and this is hurting me to the core.

Wayne T. Griffith: Now this is a serious tragedy! Anger and rage lead to the irreversible consequence of death. Let us as society try to have a mature approach to dispute resolution for the sake of innocent children.

Conchita Moseley: This is outrageous I am lost for words. Condolences to  his parents and friends. R I P little angel.

Ashley John: My Lord... why do children always have to suffer for the ignorance of adults.

Firstly, my condolences to this family. May the love and sweet memories of his short life help to change and heal the ills in this family environment. Sometimes it takes a shock for some people to grow up. They now have to deal with their consciences and the consequences. Little Joshua is now in a place of peace, no chaos.
