As Youth Prime Minister and Former Commonwealth Youth Ambassador of Trinidad and Tobago I offer my sincerest condolences to the people of Britain for the great tragedy that struck Manchester on behalf of the Youth of this former Colony of Britain. However in doing so I would like to remind the British people and all citizens of the free democratic world that the Spirit, love and vision of the British people can never be defeated because it is these qualities which built our world.
Britain has been a mother and nurturer to many nations and cultures, she has led world development for many years and therefore her resilience will stand up to any form of attack on her democracy. This cruel incident was no doubt committed by cowards who were failures in their own life so they resorted to destruction to attack a nation’s peace, sense of purpose and way of life. However the British way of life is one that can never be defeated, it can be attacked but never halted nor broken. The British way of life doesn’t only represent a culture but represents the truest form of development because it is on this premise democracy and freedom was established throughout the Commonwealth group of nations.
Therefore today as a Caribbean Youth who has benefited so much from “Mother Britannia” I can resolutely say that Britain will emerge even stronger out of one of her darkest moments.We therefore offer our love, our prayers and most of all our friendship tho those who offered us guidance on nation building and sustainable ways of living.
To all the citizens of Britain we say God bless you and may you grow stronger to continue being a leader in Global development.
