On Sunday last, I was distracted in church. I looked around and saw young couples with babies and young children. Then, I thought about Kla Marie Solomon-Cain, the ill-fated 25-year-old Tobago woman, and her two young children. If she got married at 22 because she was pregnant, her children could be no more than three years old. If the man who hammered her to death is the father of her children, did he give any thought to his children?
Did he love his children?
Did he love the mother of his children?
Did he even love himself?
In church our homilist spoke about true love as sharing in your partner’s hurts, disappointments, helping him or her through life’s journey and doing all in your power to make her/him happy.
