  1. Some Vincentian lives are just stuck in the dark ages of the pages of history or imbued with the mentality of the rabid jungle. In other parts of the world, one would find young women of this age engaged in planning a path and expectation of a wonderful future in developing a career or even polishing their nails.

    Here in primitive SVG, however we have instead of “career planning” we find these young women, fighting one another with Cutlass and knife. This sure says something about us and tells us something as to where we Vincentians are on the scale of human and personal development.

    And phew, what a disgraceful bunch we are! Are these just a pair of lea ‘go beast? Made so through poor neglected and primitive upbringing?

  2. Well they face the courts!! So I hope they have learn that violence does not pay, however I wish if the families can settle their differences and come to a good financial settlement, so that they victim can feel a sense of relief and compensation,rather than sending them to prison, and the victim gets nothing.

  3. It occurs to me that some young women in SVG have very low self esteem. Instead of driving the boys crazy your seeking notoriety, a really a bad start ‘ladies’.
