They should be very grateful

Wednesday, May 15 2013

THE EDITOR: I want to commend the Honourable Minister of Health Dr Fuad Khan for his bravery and the unwavering stance that he has taken with respect to the sextuplets’ parents and the situation.

He has to be commended for his sterling statements that while many may be “upset with it” or “find it out of place”, they are true. There is a saying that the truth hurts and that the truth shall set you free so all that Dr Khan has indicated is really substantial and has to be considered.

Dr Khan is surely right saying that the parents ought to be grateful. They have gotten a home from the HDC so quickly, that so many others have to wait some 20 years to obtain.

There is a little song that says “count your blessings name them one by one”, maybe the parents ought to sing this song and understand that many things were done to ensure that the best was given. They have to be grateful that persons are sympathetic to their need, when they are solely the ones responsible for this debacle.

Our nation, needs to be proactive and not reactive. Responsible, transparent, accountable and displaying integrity. I am really disgusted when persons only want everything on a silver platter and complain. There are so many families who have to make ends meet and do the best they can without any help from others.

There are families, such as the one I came from, that were not rich, wealthy or even middle class. My parents had seven of us and they used all that they had to take care of us. They did a very good job and were responsible towards us and did us a great duty.

So I plead with our nation, let us be responsible.
