Pledge back in its place

Social Share

After four months and several NATION articles lamenting its absence, the missing granite slab bearing the National Pledge, one of four on the Independence Arch, has finally been replaced.
The slab was still missing on Monday night, which meant it was also missing during the Thanksgiving Day service in Independence Square, but when a check was made around 11 a.m. yesterday, a sparkling, brand new slab was in place, identical to the other three.
It was heartening to see the pledge returned just in time for the day Barbadians celebrate Independence and reflect on the words of the National Pledge.
