  1. Most of us really live above our means, truth be said but instead of helping out each other, we bring each other down, whilst everyone is entitled to their opinions only Ali knew what he may have been going thru, if it was really suicide!!! Even the ones we really believe we know, we don't actually!!!! But let's stop making everything political in this country and start joining hands in this country, Remember we are the government!!! Rest in Peace Ali am sure you were loved and will be missed.

  3. St Lucian live above their means in a place where there are no jobs and very high taxes. With no governmental support for all the taxes you are paying. Since what you wear and you type of cell is king. This kind of behaves are the begging of sorrow.

  7. We can't just allow the devil to take over our island. The churches and by extension the entire nation can't stay quiet. We need to wake up and take our country back.

  8. A young boy commit suicide and the prime minister is the one to be blame. Is that the 1st time somebody commit suicide in st. Lucia? Tax is legal for other countries but illegal for st.lucia. most of us vacation in the US, canada n Uk etc n pay tax on almost every dollar we spend without uttering a word but yet its hard to pay tax in our own country. R. I. P young boy

  9. Just b cause he was found hanging does not mean he hung himself. It could have been staged.

  12. The lack of jobs in Saint Lucia and the frustration of a people who seem to me on my many visits back to the island which I was born on, may be a reason for an increase in suicide rates. Sometimes life seems too much for many and it would surprise me if there are facilities to support those who feel that they have had enough. The saint Lucian government should invest in its people, their mental health, physical health, education and encourage them to feel valued and a part of the greater saint Lucian society. I haven't resided on saint Lucia since the age of three but on my visit with my son last year , I found people to be angry, judgmental, lonely some even emotionally unstable because of a society where everything one does is scrutinized and others tend to not support you if you are going through a bad spell. People seem to much rather speak badly rather than love and support each other. Incidentally when I made this speech to a group of saint Lucian's their response was that I was gay. I thought that was amusing as I am not offended by being referred to as gay. But I am concerned for the mental welfare of most of the people I met in saint Lucia especially young people as a psychologist .
