THE EDITOR, Sir:
Many of us Jamaicans are too light-headed, thinking neither of futures nor that of children. They have lived in an age where thinking about the outcome of tomorrow was a myth. It is time to wake up, people, and face the realities of this world!
Don't rely on politicians or the Government to feed you. Instead, think of a way that will facilitate your growth and development and that of the upcoming generations.
We are so quick to support anything that is free, but what about earning and learning? There are a lot of great young minds out there which need more than just dinner for two nights and lunch money for a week.
Some of us want so much more, such as facilities that provide training, enhance growth, foster education and fuel success. For once in our lives, why can't we support a change in ideology that seeks to address our social issues such as the lack of adequate education and training for our people? When will we start standing up for better instead of our bellies?
People, it is time we start understanding the world, the issues we face, and the way we ought to address them. Until then, one will never realise why East Rural St Andrew Member of Parliament Damion Crawford has decided to invest the portion of the Constituency Development Fund allocated to him for training and education, rather than as handouts for the poor who don't seem to have hope.
