    Adults, we are responsible to train and discipline these young children; to teach them to know the attitude and conducts of Love, which is the way of Life. To encourage them to mature with pride and acceptance towards their homeland, her people, and the talents they have learned.

    Let us teach them to demonstrate respect and courtesy to those around them–man, woman, boy, and girl–regardless of the class. For they are our children, and they need us, if they must prosper in Life.

    Enchanting photograph. They are so beautiful and charming when they are young!

    A really cute reminder of who we are as a people.
    If we keep this culture alive in our youth we will see alot less of the horror we experienced a few weeks ago.
    This is the Dominica i grew up to love. I do not know why a selected few want to change that.
    We positive thinking adults can make all the difference in the lives of our kids. We just need to step up to he plate and do the right thing.
