  1. As a tourist from Canada, having enjoyed Jamaica, Antigua and other parts of the Caribbean, my adventure to St Lucia is beginning to look pretty bad and I haven't even arrived there yet! However having survived shootings, explosions during the Gulf wars and elsewhere, I feel the need to venture forward and make an effort to enjoy the beauty that St Lucia provides both in the good people that are resident there and from the island itself.
    God Bless you all.

  2. New Testament Verse of the Day:

    Many were possessed by demons; and the demons came out at his command, shouting, "You are the Son of God!" But because they knew he was the Messiah, he rebuked them and refused to let them speak.

    –Luke 4:41

  3. How do you feel to be told by a friend that St.Lucia is one of the top
    ten most violent countries in the world (per capita) that is. I checked
    it out; I only felt better when I saw that Jamaica, Trinidad were worse.
    But for heaven's sake, St.Vincent, Dominica, St.Kitts? what's going on?
    Scare to visit the places I once used to walk around without a care.
