    This is a such an unfortunate event…

    Earlier this morning I heard a large number of sirens going off outside my office.. and wondered what seemed to be the problem..

    When I looked outside I saw an Ambulance, Police car, and Fire truck going up the road thru the stoplight infront of the wharf…

    About half an hour later i read this article…

    I assume this is the  reason for all the sirens and emergency vehicles

    Really sad to hear about the young man that died suddenly after going to work this morning, but stress are killing alot of people now a days working so hard to survive.  On the same note, I would like to tell a short story of an incident which took place in Bodden Town this week at a construction site.

    A  employee, male, stopped to drink some water and catch a bit of fresh air because the sun was so very hot on the site. (we all know how hot it is outside) Anyway the bossman who is a Caymanian said to the man "what you think you doing?, and the guy replied drinking  a little water, because it is so hot.   The boss man then told the man to go home because should drink water when he got his break.  Well the employee left and 9 other men left with him.  STRESS, STRESS, STRESS.   Slavery is abolished…………………   I am not going to point out any nationality, but I am going to be very fair and say we should have some consideration for those poor men men who stay up on our darn housetop all day in the hot boiling sun,  and we dont have a bit of mercy in our hearts that they can take a break for a glass of water,  My oh my greed has taken us to another level, I can see people are dropping down every other week.  Please  think about where we came from, and where are we going.  Blessed.
