Choosing how to experience our homeland

We experience life, see our days, hear emotion and meaning when we interact with others, according to our presupposition, that unconscious window through which we see the world, each person’s point of view unique, each one’s frame of reference of a different shade than any other.

We’re a global people, of poor self-image

Guyanese now span the global village. We’re a global people, a 21st century nation in every sense of the word, with our homeland nesting comfortable, peaceful, pastoral, forest green, sunny yellow, multicultural, between the giant Amazon and the gigantic Atlantic.

Our reaction to what happens

Life happens, lots of time unpleasantly. The nature of the world we live in, and human nature itself being what it is, we face all sorts of challenges, problems, setbacks, upsets, frustrations, disappointments.

Cultivating an inspiring conversation

We want conversations that inspire us. Nothing so transforms one’s day as engaging in conversations with people in our social circle that move, inspire and lift us, nourishing the spirit, filling the soul with a sweet taste.

Our police officers in service and justice

In the midst of that crass plosive pessimistic passiveness that drowns out any kindness, goodness, friendliness, professionalism that remains in our society, there’s one Police Officer you could turn to for prompt service in Georgetown.

Writing that shapes the social space

Who makes a real difference in society? We look to politicians, as if they possess super-human powers, and when they fail, when Parliament descends to a crassly quarrelsome, strife-ridden place of inertia, we lament and moan and become disappointed.

Cultivating self-development

As I think, I am

Our role as Guyanese prepare to usher in a Guyanese Knowledge Society in this global Knowledge Age of a new global village interconnected through digital media is to cultivate the love for self-development in each citizen.

Our Guyanese ability to rise

Guyana’s special landscape, its lush forests, rolling savannahs, white sand plains, vast muddy rivers and that yawning Atlantic Ocean lapping at the edge of Georgetown, plays a role in shaping the individual Guyanese.

Competing for the Guyanese knowledge worker

-aspiring to build Guyana into a Knowledge Society

We see the impact, across the Guyanese nation, of that devastating, world-record brain drain of 87 percent of our skilled knowledge workers migrating to societies where they could fast achieve their dreams.

What motivates us

Brigadier David Granger’s sensible cry for political cooperation in governance of this land comes at a crucial time in our history Granger toured the Guyanese New York, USA, diaspora communities this week, and responded to widespread criticism of how his Opposition leads Parliament, with a dramatic appeal to the spirit of engagement, reaching out and cooperation.

That raucous rowdiness

Parliament, the national media and the State carry on a constant clattering noise of raucous rowdiness, quite divorced from the concerns of the citizens of this land.

How we see ourselves

- the power of language to shape our future

Our nation, the Guyanese civilization, this society, exists in language. We chose to define ourselves, a nation forged under fiery forced labour in the British Empire, through words, names, language.

Shaping a real Guyana vision

Our nation drags through its days, under the searing sun on the edge of the vast broiling Atlantic Ocean with the green waves of virgin forests shaping our dear land, facing this void: we lack a national vision.

Let’s be real

Let’s look at our nation along its historical curve. From our formation as a people welded together in the fiery furnace of harsh, back-brukin’ labour on broiling-sun agro-estates, we today struggle to forge the Guyanese way of being.

Training Rohee on role of free media

Ironic, isn’t it, that on the same day news flared up in the United States and Europe that the Italian mafia connects with Guyana to smuggle narcotics across the world, General Secretary of the ruling political party, Home Affairs Minister Clement Rohee, was launching a verbal attack against the free, independent press?

Mentoring and developing the young

Young people make up most of our nation’s population today. And unless we create sound ways to mentor and coach and develop these young minds, we would stumble along into our default future, another generation lost, unable to rise to our potential.

What’s going on at Freedom house?

Social media steamed with stunned shock this week at an electrifying media statement out of the headquarters of the ruling People’s Progressive Party’s (PPP), Freedom House.

Building a just society

For decades, great and noble Guyanese souls fought for democracy to become our solid foundation, believing it would lead to us realizing our true potential as a nation.
