Pause for a cause


Share post:

BARBADIANS IN GENERAL have been urged to strongly condemn all forms of violence in society and parents, in particular, have been encouraged to teach their children that such acts have no place in a civil society.
These appeals came from Minister of Family Stephen Lashley, as he, along with other Cabinet members, joined relatives and friends of the six young women who perished in a fire at the Campus Trendz store in Tudor Street two years ago in observing a minute’s silence at noon in Heroes Square.
This year, September 3 was designated a Day Of Reflection, to be observed in honour of the women, as well as all other victims of violent crime in Barbados.
Radio stations paused broadcasting, cashiers at some supermarkets halted their activity and in some areas of the island traffic came to a standstill, as Barbadians paid respects to the victims.
