PRESS RELEASE – PRAYER IS THE BEST COMFORTER
“Today, November 10, 2014, is the third anniversary of the Morne Sion Tragedy, where nineteen Saint Lucians lost their lives in Choiseul. Three years later, hearts and homes remain empty and many are struggling to come to terms with their loss.
On this day, I call on all to spare a moment to offer prayers for the souls of the departed and the families and communities affected by this tragedy. Share a word of comfort with the children, parents, friends and other loved ones who were left behind to redefine life after this dreadful day.
In times like these we must set aside all differences to hold and support each other.
It is my sincere hope that with the completion of the Symbol of Faith which has been commissioned to mark this tragedy, we will in future remember this day in a more collective manner.”
