  1. It is sad to see our people getting prestigious awards and all some of us can see is the politics. Can we be happy for others and respect decisions made by our government heads. We should be more aware of what's posted online because it's not st Lucian citizens alone reading the negativity that's written after each post. When you bring down your fellow citizens, you bring down your own country. Listen to our song St lucia unite..one people one love..
