The greatest thanks, says Prime Minister, Dr. Kenny D. Anthony, really should go to the people of Saint Lucia.
According to the prime minister, “The out pouring of love, commitment and patriotism for our country was inspiring. It really was wonderful to witness how Saint Lucians expressed themselves in the colours of our flag. Those who carried our flags on their vehicles brought the country to life and truly helped to make the celebrations memorable. Our young people did not disappoint us. Their performances were truly outstanding.They shared their talents with class, character and love. Our disciplined forces too must also be thanked. Many have agreed that their performance at the Independence Parade was one of the best ever. It was so good that Saint Lucians were able to put differences aside and celebrate together, in peace and harmony, the unveiling of the statue of Sir John Compton. I have no doubt that Sir John would have wanted it that way.
Obviously, we will have to review the entire programme to build on its future success.”
Meanwhile, the independence activities continue with the independence lecture at the Gros Islet Secondary School Auditorium, today Monday, February 24, 2014 at 7 p.m. The lecture will be delivered by Janeve Remy on the theme, “Fulfilling the Promise: Our Future in a Globalized World”. All are invited to attend to hear this young Saint Lucian.
