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.
