Now is the time show love, unity
Now with all the hype and patriotism that Trinidadians and Tobagonians have been exuding with the Olympics for our athletes, I can't help but wonder whether when it's all over, they will resort to being the discourteous beasts that some have become as is evident with their actions on the roadways, especially in the Woodbrook-St James areas with the new traffic plan.
I wouldn't be surprised if some of them refuse to slow down to allow Lalonde Gordon or Kelly-Ann Baptiste into the flow of traffic if the situation arises, but over the past week nobody has been waving more flags than them.
Why can't we keep that patriotic spirit all year round, not only on the roads but everywhere we go!
According to 3Canal's song, what's so hard in saying "Morning neighbour, morning" and just exercise the Trini spirit that used to be the envy of the rest of the world?
For the traffic plan and generally the improvement of our attitudes, we need to be more loving, and genuinely caring towards each other and show courtesy where it is due.
We are celebrating 50 years of Independence and apparently giving the impression to the rest of the world that we are moving backwards as a nation.
As the lyrics to a popular kaiso collaboration of a few years ago go, "now is the time — to show some unity now is the time — to help humanity Yes — now is the time"!
