I saw a picture a couple of days ago in the Barbados Today showing three young men looking as though they were totally not connected to what’s really going on.
This is very sad to see some of the youths in Barbados who most of them are educated. But for some reason, or reasons refuse to use good common sense. One of the questions attached to the article with the three young men in the picture was, do they think ? We all have to think in order to create actions. But the problem is how many of us even worry to think what the consequences of our actions would be.
THOUGHTS MAKE ACTIONS, not the other way around. Deep down inside I feel that some of the young people who are doing all the different things, are doing them for acceptance. They see all these different videos, and movies with the THUG STYLE. And they have embraced it since to them it seems so glamorous. So they become followers to what they have seen. Many of them seem to be lost unless they bare connected to what they call their boys, or gangs.
Being in a gang you can get others to listen even thought they might not give you good advice. But they listen. The one thing that some of these young people seem to be lacking starting from at home. Many of today’s young people are the products of young parents who were children themselves. So some grandparents do not want to be called grandparents since they feel they are too young. The problems starts by being friends instead of being parents, or grandparents guiding the little ones in the right directions. As a consequence they give the children everything they think they should have, or everything they say that they want. But children should only be rewarded when deserving of what’s given to them;
To read about a boy 19 years old, Aaron Idamar Roberts facing a MURDER CHARGE is very, very sad, to see our young people not being RESPONSIBLE. Please don’t get me wrong, I am not blaming all young people. But those of you who has chosen the THUGS way of life. Without applying some common sense in choices being made from day to day.
To the system that’s presently in place. Giving someone LIFE in imprisonment for taking anther person’s life will never change the mentality of those who chose to become someone’s judge, jury, and executioner; At the end of the day the tax payers are paying for that person to remain alive after taking another person’s life, most of the time for no good reason.
The death penalty is still carried out in many countries for those found guilty of murder. So why is it that Barbados doesn’t use a different method of execution to those who seem to be comfortable taking a life? **DEATH BY LETHAL INJECTION**; I am not for hanging, but I am 110% for THE DEATH PENALTY.
If nothing changes to deter those who decides to take another person’s life…. It will get worse before it gets better. Don’t wait until it’s one of your family members, or a good friend that’s being killed by a person, or persons that has no regards for another human’s life.
I thought the bible said:-“An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth? Also we must obey the laws of the land. It’s all good and well for AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL to be against taking a life after the person is found guilty. But where was AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL when an innocent life was taken for a crime after all the proof pointed towards the man’s innocence? I strongly believe that until we accept the responsibility that WE ARE ALL OUR BROTHERS KEEPERS. We will continue to go in a circle, that will never lead anywhere.
Love and belief in THE CREATOR is the key to all things;
