One of the richest legacies the late Prime Minister David Thompson left was his desire for Barbados to remain a community.
And in remembering her husband, St John Member of Parliament Mara Thompson has urged the country to hold hands and come together.
Speaking after the David Thompson fourth anniversary memorial service at the Unity Wesleyan Holiness Church in Edgecliff, St John yesterday, she said that Barbados’ unity was even more important at this time of financial uncertainties.
“[David] often stressed the importance of relationships and socialising with people. The need to build the community was for him not an ideal but a work in progress. Many of you here today who lived in his tenure in opposition can testify to his passion for people and connecting. Today I can say that I have witnessed the impact of the decline in that connectivity,” Thompson said. (SDB Media)
