ASSOCIATION: Linden Fund USA: End-of-Year Message and Collage of 2021 Calendar of Activities

Greetings and warm wishes for a safe and healthy New Year on behalf of the LFU Board of Directors and staff of LFU Guyana, Inc.
We’ve come to the end of the year with perhaps less certainty than we’d like about the end of the challenges imposed by the pandemic.
In spite of the limitations, LFU managed to maintain a robust calendar of activities in 2021 – from the launch of our economic development initiative to strong investment in academic excellence at the primary, secondary and post-secondary/vocational levels, to continuing our support of our vulnerable senior citizens. See  2021 LFU Calendar of Activities
To those who answered our membership appeal, thank you for being a sustaining member in 2021!    Continue reading

OPINION: Year 2021: Reflections – by Rosaliene Bacchus

Three Worlds One Vision – Guyana: Brazil: USA — By Rosaliene Bacchus

What a year! With the global COVID-19 pandemic of 2020 still upending our lives, the year 2021 has taught me that, with constant adaptation to ever-changing conditions, I can endure. The coronavirus had already taken over 385,000 American lives when I watched in disbelief the live TV broadcast of the January 6th assault on the US Capitol building. Terrorism had come home to American soil. Future generations may come to regard that day as the meltdown of our global War on Terror.

Nature’s ever-mutating, coronavirus terrorist has thrown our divided forces into disarray. When you cannot see the enemy, you are unaware of any imminent danger of a stealth attack. Underestimating the strength of the enemy can also lead to defeat and possible death. Instead of confronting our common enemy, we have turned on each other. Unable to agree on proven scientific strategies of defense against this formidable foe, we have sustained thousands of casualties within our ranks, especially among our weakest and most vulnerable members.
