Just look at the creative imagination and vision which she and the videographer displayed by sending a video clip of Girls’ High School’s involvement in President Obama’s inauguration celebration to CNN.

It reached all over the world and brought instant glory, not only to the Girls’ High School but to St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

I have been loaded with email and phone calls about the positive impact in the United States of America in general and Brooklyn in particular. My friends are mightily pleased! After all, Brooklyn N.Y. and other places where Vincentians reside, are a spiritual and cultural extension of St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

Who knows if President Obama saw the clip and so waived the embargo on certain funds to St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago? This may well be an unintended diplomatic coup.
