Call to Youth
Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley yesterday challenged Barbados’ youth to reform and refashion the country in a stirring address at the 53rd National Independence Day Parade at Kensington Oval.
She said three areas of focus were the youth, the environment and productivity.
Pitching her message directly to about 400 members of the newly formed Barbados Youth Advance Corps, along with scores of others from youth groups, Mottley said: “On your shoulders already lies the mantle of leadership . . . of friends, family and in community.
“Your road is a long road, and yours is a serious duty to help us uplift this nation of ours, such that those who come after you shall always be inspired to give of their best.”
Mottley cautioned about “anti-social behaviour” and its consequences. (GC)
