Still much to celebrate
It's been a strange week, full of signs, portents, non-appearances, non-drinkers and finally, a hole in the ground (should we say it?), dear Liza.
We suppose it could be argued that in the actual children's song it's a hole in the bucket, but if you check the lyrics, well, let's just say there may be a lesson in there from which to draw. The question is, if this one was such a challenge, what will it take to fill the next hole in the ground? Maybe the planners can Google the lyrics of the old children's song to find out exactly what is required.
On another issue, a look at the daily headlines would show that our women continue to face many deadly challenges as they go about their daily lives but there is still much to celebrate and in this issue we do just that.
It was almost like a grace note to receive the story of fellow journalist Phoolo Danny-Maharaj who recently received a National Award for her service in the sphere of journalism. Her story is an example of courage and determination.
There are the stories of the other women of T&T who have received National Awards in recognition of their service to the community. We hope that what they've shared in these pages will inspire all the young women coming of age and growing into womanhood.
Congratulations to all those who received awards and the women of T&T who fill so many roles, everything from A to Z.
