Tourism and Culture Minister Rene Baptiste and Northern Grenadines’ Representative Dr. Godwin Friday gave their support to the Young Leaders last Friday. They were part of a platform party at a rally staged at Victoria Park.
Baptiste praised the GHS for its display of leadership. She also commended the teachers for sticking with the students.
Baptiste rehashed an incident that occurred on the day a youth was slaughtered.
“What happened to love?” Baptiste asked. The Tourism and Culture Minister encouraged the leaders to desist from the line of resistance.
Dr. Friday, filling in for Opposition leader Arnhim Eustace, expressed confidence in the nation’s youth and their show of leadership. Friday pointed out that the youngsters could teach “valuable lessons about the importance of peaceful resolution to conflict.
“We have to hope that there is a better way than fighting to solve conflict,” Friday said.
The Northern Grenadines representative stressed the solving of conflict and reminded the youths that support was forthcoming from both sides of the House.
Youngsters Luke Browne and GHS Young Leader Shamora Scott also addressed the gathering. It was not all talk, however, as a dance by some GHS students strengthened the call for peaceful resolution to conflicts.
