Give thanks to political leaders
Barbadians have been urged to thank their political leaders for their service to country.
The encouragement came from Priest-in-charge at The Church of Christ The King, Reverend Father Robert Luther Johnson, who while admitting that some of the licks they received were deserved; he posited that likewise, the good they contribute to society must also be applauded.
His comments were made during a special service held at the Rock Dundo Park, St Michael church to conclude the Democratic Labour Party’s week looking activities to celebrate its 63rd anniversary.
In attendance at the service was Prime Minister Freundel Stuart, members of his Cabinet including Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler, Minister of Education Ronald Jones, Minister of Commerce Donville Inniss, Minister of Health John Boyce, members of the executive and general council of the DLP, and other members and supporters.
“. . . Every single one of us should be thanking them for offering themselves for service. These persons on both sides give much and they try to do a whole lot for us. And one of my problems is that we have become such a thankless society. When was the last time you thanked your constituency representative on either side? . . . As I said, they get licks and very often they deserve it, but they also deserve our heartfelt thanks for the kindness . . . . So on behalf on myself and this congregation we want to thank you for the service that you render,” Rev Johnson said. (SDB Media)
