Editorial

Wake me up when September ends! This month has been one of disaster
and despair. My heart goes out to the Bahamians who had to face the most
gruelling storm in their history. Saint Lucia should count their blessings
once again for being spared the havoc from a Hurricane once again. After
the carnage to neighbouring island Dominica, I think most Saint Lucian’s
were watchful of the incoming hurricane Dorian.


I still believe some of us need to be more careful and prepare earlier. The
supermarkets’ shelves ran out of some essential supplies. This normally
happens when a severe weather system is approaching; therefore, you must
stock up early. The aftermath of Dorian in the Bahamas was unfortunate
and heartbreaking. Dorian should teach us a lesson that we should always
be prepared, not only for storms but generally in our daily life. We can not
take the little things for granted. It was quite upsetting to see some persons
were angry that they had to open their businesses late due to hurricane
warnings.


I want to implore to Saint Lucians and any of my readers who can be affected
by any storms to take heed and precautions. If you are speared, thank God,
don’t be grouchy, the next disaster can be right on your doorstep.
