PM calls on Nation for a greater sense of oneness

Prime Min­is­ter Dr Kei­th Row­ley wants the peo­ple of T&T to set aside their dif­fer­ences and unite as one.

He al­so called for a greater sense of one­ness as he briefly ad­dressed the au­di­ence at the Queen’s Park Sa­van­nah yes­ter­day dur­ing the in­ter­faith ser­vice ti­tled Songs of De­vo­tion, which marked the na­tion’s 42nd an­niver­sary as a Re­pub­lic.

The Prime Min­is­ter urged the con­gre­ga­tion to dis­miss past no­tions say­ing: “What­ev­er you might have been think­ing years ago, if you had doubt that there would have been a day like this, to­day, this day is here.”

Reaf­firm­ing his com­mit­ment to T&T and its peo­ple, the Prime Min­is­ter added, “If you ever had any doubts this morn­ing about our fu­ture,” the voic­es of those de­liv­er­ing wor­ship, “should con­vince us that we are one strong, beau­ti­ful lit­tle na­tion.”

He went on, “If at the per­son­al lev­el we thought we might have lost our way, some­where to­day in the Qasee­da, some­where in that Bha­jan, some­where to­day in that spir­i­tu­al, I hope like me, you have found your con­fi­dence to know that T&T is a na­tion un­der God.”

As the au­di­ence ap­plaud­ed, Row­ley ac­knowl­edged the ef­forts of those re­spon­si­ble for putting to­geth­er yes­ter­day’s pro­gramme as he said it had lift­ed every­one’s spir­its.

Row­ley said, “No­body promised us a per­fect day every day but there are promis­es that we can’t de­ny as wher­ev­er we wor­ship, even when we weep, we know that joy cometh in the morn­ing.”
