I hope you will allow me to commend the people of your little nation of nations via your newspaper regarding my experience in The Bahamas.
I became acquainted with a number of people I found to be pleasant and heartwarming folk. Even the youth are respectful to senior citizens, of which I am a member of that group.
In a business center downtown, I met a wonderful Bahamian gent who was very humble and kind in full uniform. He expressed his life spent as captain of the Boys Brigade. He shared its motto he coined into a phrase that inspired me: “I’d rather build a boy than mend a man”.
I shared my experience as a juvenile delinquent and how God saved me and made me a man. As a preacher and poet, I enjoyed my experience on New Providence, as well as meeting and greeting island folks whose demeanor says much about them as a people in whose nation God is the Lord.
