Cato gets visit for Independence

The widow of the father of St Vincent and the Grenadines is concerned about the increasing instances of crime in the country. Lucy Cato’s independence wish is to see the young people gravitate to positive things and shun evil desires and deeds.

“I just want to see us return to peace and cut down on crime,” Mrs. Cato said.

As she looked forward to this year’s Independence celebration Mrs. Cato couldn’t help but remember her late husband, reflecting on the pride that he felt around independence time.

“He stood tall, he took pride in what Independence meant,” she said as she admitted that she enjoyed watching him take the military salute as prime minister.{{more}}

“I enjoyed looking at him,” she said with a glow on her face.

As for life in St Vincent and the Grenadines Mrs. Cato had high praise for the Government’s education revolution.

“It is exciting to see so many young people get the opportunity to study and advance themselves” said Mrs. Cato.

She was speaking to SEARCHLIGHT when she was visited recently by students of the Calliaqua Pre School.

She told the enthusiastic group of children along with their principal Leslie Young and her assistants that she was delighted that they visited her.

“I am so delighted to meet you all, it speaks well for the nation,” Mrs. Cato said.
