Corruption has Donald Ramotar cornered – commentary

Corruption has Donald Ramotar cornered

JUNE 19, 2012 | BY  | EDITORIAL

Over time the people of this country have been hearing about their corrupt government. For example, there was talk that Forbes Burnham had stolen so much money that he was the fifth richest person in the world. The accusers quoted Forbes Magazine. Those were the days when information contained in foreign magazines was not readily available.

It turned out that there was never such a publication. Today, more than 25 years after Burnham’s death there is no evidence that he was ever a wealthy man. President Cheddi Jagan came to power with a pledge to run a lean and clean government. And he was true to his word.

Find Your Wings – Mark Harris – video

Find Your Wings – Mark Harris

This video should have been posted on Father’s Day. … but every day is Father’s day so have a look!

Comment from a viewer:

This is such a powerful song and this video just takes it to an even higher level of meaning. I can’t help but remember this quote from Joyce Maynard: “It’s not only children who grow. Parents do too. As much as we watch to see what our children do with their lives, they are watching us to see what we do with ours. I can’t tell my children to reach for the sun.  All I can do is reach for it, myself.”
