EDUCATION + OUR CHILDREN = OUR FUTURE

Dear Source,
To all Virgin Island leaders, educators, and especially voters!!!:
"If your plan is for one year, plant rice; if your plan is for ten years, plant trees; if your plan is for a hundred years, educate children" – Confucius.
Let us not forget that children are our future, and if we are not making sure that they are receiving the education that they are entitled to, then we are committing an act of genocide upon our own selves. Let's stop wasting time, and get back to basics. Education is priority. Voters, if our leaders are not saying much about your child's ABC's, then it's time to start choosing leaders that demonstrate empathy about children's future — it's as easy as 1-2-3!!!
