My fellow Grenadians
After 42 years of independence, our nation reflects maturity. Having endured many years and numerous challenges, the State of Grenada Carriacou and Petite Martinique still mirrors resiliency and healing.
In our endeavour to consolidate our fate as one people, the future of our nation without a doubt, relies on the strength and courage of each generation, to remain focused on the vision proclaimed by our founding fathers, and mothers, and the sacrifice of all citizens, and friends, who have ransomed. Respect must be given and honour declared, to those who carry on today, the process of selfless contribution to building and strengthening our nation.
Striving towards our destiny requires extraordinary faith and courage and oneness with unquestionable purpose. Citizens of Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique, in our pursuit we must heed the relentless call of our leader, who has shown courage and faith in the belief that we, as one people will choose unity over contention, and division.
I wish Grenadians in China, the Americas and wherever you may be in the world, and to all Grenadians at home on Grenada, Carriacou, and Petite Martinique “Happy Independence.” To the pioneering students in China, to those studying everywhere, in the world, remember, you are entrusted with bearing the name of our country, as front line ambassadors, that must strive to reflect the pure values of our people, not measured by the size of our numbers, but by the courage, and faith to be “striving toward our destiny with faith and courage as one people.”
