“St. Rose must have
reminded many per-
sons of the words of
Jesus Christ who said,
quote “Daughters of
Jerusalem, weep not
for me, but weep for
yourselves, and for
your children.” One of
this nation’s daugh-
ters wept in Parlia-
ment, but it was not for

na St. Rose.
There comes a time
in life when you have
to take the bull by the
horns, and Verna St.
Rose showed clearly
that she loves her young
brothers and sisters with
all her heart and soul
and more than many of
their own parents.
But most of all, Verna
demonstrated her love
for the child as a con-
cerned, caring mother
would, and she cried her
heart out on Friday and
ran the tears for the Par-
liament and the nation,
to see the hurt in both
her soul and mothers
who lost their loved ones
by tragic circumstances.

St. Rose pointed at the
Prime Minister, who is
also a mother herself.
It was also for the
murdered infants and
children who have be-
come the brutal targets
of vicious, sick predators
and murderers, some of
whom belong to the fam-
liy itself, and something
drastic was necessary
to flag the message.

But that is a separate
story for another day, as
many startling headlines
in recent times, espe-
cially in Newsday during
the several elections this
year, show clearly such
shortcomings of head-
line choices, to suggest
that some journalists
and editors may have
become the tools of ma-
nipulating politicians.
It must have been a
very sad day in Parlia-
ment to be remembered
when St. Rose vented
her fury, and the Speak-
er, Wade Mark must
be commended for his
delicate handling of the
situation, but for some
in the hallowed portals
who are born without
feeling or a heart and a
soul, it may have been
regarded as just another
day of politricks.
However, Ms. St.
Rose’s voice in the wil-
derness of Parliament
was successful, as the
lady would have raised
significant national con-
cern that the Govern-
ment is going nowhere,
with its election promise
on child care.
Also, how the PP de-
termines its priorities,
which is a serious prob-
lem, since construction,
highways, road paving
and box drains are their
main objectives for elec-
tion achievements, and
not other matters as

No matter a hundred
highways and a million
box drains, nothing is
more valuable than a
human life and surely if
the Prime Minister in her
public relations tirades
would hug, love and kiss
up the children of Laven-
tille, then one has to
wonder what is her true
mind set.
The innocent child
from Maloney who was
recently murdered and
then raped by a human
demon with a mad DNA,
may have become a
Prime Minister in the
country one future day.
That innocent child,
as with thousands of
others who are pres-
ently left alone and help-
less, needed all the pro-
tection that comes from
caring parents.
But that is impossible
for many mothers, espe-
cially in the circumstanc-
es of the daily struggles
for living.
And if the single par-
ent has to work at KFC
or a casino or selling
corn on the highway,
then a serious social
problem exists, be-
cause the mother can-
not be in two places at
the same time. And for
some of the men left in
attendance, the devil

St. Rose is obviously
a very determined wom-
an with a genuine loving
cause and fighting with
her might, not for herself
but for her infant broth-
ers and sisters and for
their helpless mothers
too. She must be com-
plimented, although Par-
liament is not the right
place --- but, but is deaf
ears everywhere else.
Truthfully, St. Rose’s
unselfish cry is essen-
tially a grave concern
for the unprotected and

St Rose for her bravery,

her to press on harder
now and galvanize the

that PM Kamla and her
cabal decide do some

which for some reason
or the other, is on the

claim they have the evi-

It is a fact that when
a person has a genuine
commitment and belief,
it consumes the human
psyche so totally, that
what appears difficult
for some becomes easy
for others. Hell hath no
fury is an appropriate
expression for what was
witnessed last Friday. It
was easy for St. Rose.
