    I believe the balance of his mind was disturbed. His house was near to the new housing project where ( I think thirty or more families receive keys to the apartments) so sad R.I.P

    *Too many of our newly born are christened in poverty and die in poverty.

    Sad! Deepest sympathy to the family.

    “James resided in a small wooden building behind the bus stop.” While the honorary double doctorate leader lives in a palatial fortress, paid for by indigent people like James, many Dominicans live in squalor. The challenges just to subsist are too difficult to endure.

    The last thing a man loses is hope. The present economic conditions in Dominica have created desperation among the population. Too many of christen baptized in poverty and die in poverty. My heart aches for the many Jameses.

        Maybe you should first ask yourself that question? IBO doesnt have to confess anything to you. Seek within your soul and ask if you are part of the reason why James hang himself.

        Yes Ibo France KID ON THE BLOCK is so right. What did u do to help since you know so much? Stop verbal d and make a contribution instead of complaining. And I know also you live in a palace overseas. You need to grow up since you seem to know what to do and not to do. So do what you can do and stop look at others
