We are at a point where the embers of our history that were buried have started to show flame. It never stopped burning, and many times before flames have shot up and it has been very visible. This is one of those times. While some try to take away from the main issues I think it’s important that we stay the course, and tackle our demons.
The murder of the Henry boys have flared up a number of issues, race being the most prominent, but also lack of education, lack of proper counseling services, lack of conflict resolution in the Guyana Police Force. And much more. We must make every effort to begin fixing Guyana.
A nation that cannot protect its children and its youth, will lose the respect of its people and internationally as well. An injustice to a child is an injustice to us all and in this regard this incident must not be forgotten. It must not be a passing hype in this social media culture. This incident has opened up a wound and we must properly treat it. Or it will remain infected and it will burst open again. It must start with justice for the Henry boys.
Our leaders across this nation have to decry this gruesome murder and have to take a national stand against racism, for if it was not racially motivated it definitely deepened the racial divide. We all should march against it, we all should debate it, we all should create laws that make racial prejudice unlawful, laws that include quotas of representation by race at national levels, we should not sweep this one under the carpet – it’s the big elephant in the room. We need Justice.
