Keith Rowley said ( about Martin Daly ) : “I expect that there are enough people who understand that they need to be vaccinated, and I expect that those people will come out. Today we are in Diego Martin, which is the bottom of the Diego Martin Valley; and later on, in a couple weeks we will do Carenage. We are taking the programme into communities all around because there are some people who need to be encouraged where they live. Not everybody will want to go out to the health centres,” “We expect that children would want to go to school. There is a tremendous psychological pressure on children to be home. As a Government, as a country, we believe we are sufficiently safe to bring children out to school. And as we continue to follow the health protocols, because those children are vaccinated, it gives them an element of ­protection” External link

It is a bond beyond common goals, common interests, or common histories. Friendship is being with the other in joy and sorrow, even when we cannot increase the joy or decrease the sorrow. It is a unity of souls that gives nobility and sincerity to love. Friendship makes all of life shine brightly. Even our scriptures remind us that blessed are those who lay down their lives for their friends” “Frankie was always prepared to lay down his life, politically, economically, socially, and spiritually for us, those sons and daughters in whom he believed, and in whom he saw the promise of a better, brighter Trinidad and Tobago.

And what has been the result of that? As things go more difficult, become more dangerous, it becomes even closer and closer to the reality of a loss of control,” External link
