Greetings Dearest Online Family and Friends: We hope all of you are doing great. Additionally, we hope everything is perfect in your life [with you and your families.]
the past 4 weeks it seemed I have been moving around under a dark cloud,
full of anxiety; just completely stressed and full of worry!
Sleep was, and is something I rarely got.
Not to mention my direction; that too was lost.
I found myself being irritated constantly and having a burning
desire to obtain clarification and answers for the questions I had (and
still have) spinning around my head.
All over the State of Emergency (“SoE”) in my country
– Trinidad and Tobago!
though many citizens are stifled and have to subdue their experiences,
feelings, and even thoughts due to this State of Emergency; I am pleased
that I am able to hear exactly what quite a few are experiencing…to
hear the stories and cries coming out of the voices of many.
Of course, my heart goes out to those who are suffering and are
affected in some form or another over this SoE.
I have been fearful for the lives [the state of living] of my
immediate family and very large extended family members that reside
there. However, I am
extremely thankful that everything has been coming along real smooth for
all of them. Except for a
few who are unable to work the late hours, as they did in the past due
to the implemented curfew (in quite a few areas;) ~~~ resulting in a
substantial decrease in funds; which of course affects them and their
family’s standard of living.
status is pretty much the same.
Other issues that occurred includes:
with all that is transpiring in Trinidad, our planned trip was first
postponed, and now it pretty much has been canceled (since the SoE
has been extended.) Of
course our adorable nieces who had placed their orders for school
supplies and everything else they felt they needed [LOL] are
disappointed (the 4 year old and 5 going on 6 year old.)
Actually, Mom and the rest of the family are not too happy, and
neither are we. I am
hopeful though when the 3 month long imposed SoE is complete, it will
NOT be extended for a third time. Once
it is not extended we will proceed with our visit.
a very serious note, I must thank you for all your comments regarding my
last week’s commentary on Trinidad and Tobago’s SoE.
Moreover, thanks to those who specifically commented on Hollis
Lashley’s “FlashPoint,” which were the thoughts and feelings of a
non-citizen of Trinidad regarding the SoE (this non-citizen
apparently reside in Trinidad currently, but who will be leaving soon.)
I must explain that although we had our own comments and feelings
about what the author wrote, we felt it was important to refrain from
sharing our thoughts on the piece (at the time.)
And of course we seriously debated whether we should publish it
(per Mr. Lashley’s request.) However,
after giving it some serious thought we felt it might be interesting to
show a different opinion of what is going on in the minds of others.
Further, we felt it is important to not only express one side of
the issue…but to be open-minded and share other views.
though, we were completed disgusted by the writer’s piece, and we felt
it was the most racist and disrespectful words written about a place and
of a people…a people who are very close to our hearts, [especially
written by someone who is a visitor.]
perhaps last week we should have attached a disclaimer regarding this “over
the top” “Flashpoint”.
I pray that the people of Trinidad and Tobago are given the strength to overcome the hardships they are experiencing during this devastating time. That they become each other’s keeper. That they work hand in hand in peace, love and harmony with their fellow men!
I thank you once again my on-line family and friends for your wonderfully educational and extremely thought provoking feedback. I can't stop thanking my husband "Todd Mangatal" for his great input regarding the many discussions, research, and his assistance in the conveying of this important issue. I further thank him for graciously tuning into the country's news, when I am unable to do so...when time simply doesn't permit me to tune in.
Again, I ask you to share with me your
thoughts on this important above issue.
am always delighted when I receive them; so please keep them coming in,
as it helps me to learn and improve my way of thinking and seeing
Now the season has changed once again;
autumn equinox slipped into place.
In fact today (September 23rd) is the first day of
Fall. I was truly “WOWED”
yesterday, as I noticed the leaves have changed colors, and they are
rapidly falling off the trees.
The shorter days are also upon us with the sun rising later and nightfall coming sooner; and of course the cooler weather follows. Changes…exquisite and spectacular season changes…plus changes in many aspects will be occurring; so get ready for the loveliness to begin.

an innocent man. And I understand inside his death chamber on Wednesday night,
his pleas were no different.
of supporters signed petitions on Davis' behalf including an
ex-president and an ex-FBI
director, liberals and conservatives.
His attorneys even stated seven
out of nine key witnesses against him disputed all or parts of their
testimony, but in vain. The state and federal judges repeatedly ruled
However, his life came to an abrupt end [anyway] some days ago. May his soul rest in peace!!!
We lost a member of our community this week and many in our community are mourning the lost of this lovely woman - Juliana Vincent.
