St. Lucian youth need to RISE!! (commentary)

COMMENTARY – Young people must be passionate about helping others .I see our brothers and sisters die everyday and yet we have no clue , on how we are going to solve this situation.

I believe that family condition leads to Violent Crime in St. Lucia. Parents hostility, physical and emotional abuse towards their children, shapes their future in being delinquent ,because they feel deprived of love and affection.

This happens in broken families which cause absence of mothers or fathers . The lack of parental supervision and discipline ,also leads our young people to be forced in engaging in crime as a result of peer pressure and even parents with Criminal records.

The relationship between parents has powerful effect on a child life, therefore we need to find the root of the problems which affect the various families.

The real way of reducing violent crime is the work of rebuilding families and not increasing on the numbers of prisoners. It is essential that we uncover the problem in the various families that will affect the different communities which leads to the country.

People of St. Lucia need to understand that this is a crucial situation which requires understanding and must
be supportive in anyway possible. Why don’t the Religious ,Governmental and non Governmental organization, or better to say the people in Authority work together .where are the Social Workers?

All we do , visit the media every time a crime occur and expecting police officers to decrease on crime rate in St. Lucia. We need to take real leadership– leadership through ideas and passionate about helping others , will use words to inspire and co operation in rebuilding families, neighbors and communities.

Lets make Religious Education more effective Social workers in various Communities.

Lets give our young people a place to belong and hope for their future , lets learn to build long term relationships not for money, but a generous commitment of personal time for our brothers and sisters, to make our country free of Violent Crime!!!!!
