Don’t back down, Rev Thwaites

THE EDITOR, Sir:

Rev Ronald Thwaites, every word of your article in the Monday, April 29, 2019 issue of The Gleaner rings true. Until especially we the women in our society understand and accept full responsibility for the careless way we hook up with unprepared males and bring children into this world with no foundation and no support, there will always be the mayhem, the deprivation, and the anarchy in the society.

Rev Thwaites, from the many platforms that you have, please do not stop sounding the alarm bells. Do not back down, even in the face of scoff and ridicule, as happened when "values and attitudes" was first put forwarded in the early 90s. The times call for people with courage to stand up and be counted.

Thank you for your unrelenting stance on the value of good family life for the building of any nation. I strongly believe it begins with us the females.
