Park Hill JP wants the nation to return to God

A JUSTICE of the Peace is appealing to residents in Park Hill, especially the youths, to get back on the right footing, and the nation to turn to God.

The call came from Justice of the Peace (JP), Brian DaBreo, as he addressed a public meeting in Park Hill on Thursday May, 9, 2024.

The meeting was organized by the Royal St Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force (RSVGPF), and was one of a series of community walk about and meetings being held across the nation to address the situation on crime and violence and get feedback from residents in these communities.

Speaking at the meeting which was held at the Park Hill Square, Da Breo called on the young people to get involved in activities such as sports, skills training, police youth clubs, and churches, instead of turning to a life of crime and violence.

“Get involved in activities to bring back the Park Hill that we know to get it back on its right footing.”

The JP, who is a resident of Park Hill said a full community effort is needed in the fight against crime and violence.

“All of us have to make the difference in our community,” he stressed.

Da Breo, who also is a teacher and a Minister of the Gospel also called the nation back to God.

“We as a nation have lost our way. We have lost our spiritual values and we have turned our backs on the word of God.”

He added that at times, people fail to acknowledge God in the homes, schools and workplaces.

Da Breo said as a result the blessings of God cannot be received.

In appealing for residents of Park Hill and the rest of the nation to get back on the right footing, the Justice of the Peace is encouraging people to seek God.

“Let us seek God for the change in our lives and for the change in our country.

“Let us get down on our knees and pray to God, only He alone can bring the change.”

Da Breo also sounded a warning that “A life of crime and violence will not pay.”

He recalled the emotional funerals of the two young men of Park Hill who were murdered last month and their bodies burnt. Not wanting to see a repeat of such crime, Da Breo stressed “ We all have to stand up for what is right in this community.”

“Too many of our young people are going astray, we have to find a way to get them on the right path,” he declared.

Thursday’s public meeting was preceded by a walk about in Park Hill, by members of the RSVGPF.

The event was intended as well to apprise residents of the gun amnesty which comes to an end on May 31, 2024.
