Barbados in mourning

The Prime Minister of Barbados, David Thompson, passed away this weekend at the age of 48.

I expect that the entire nation is mourning - Mr. Thompson to me appeared to be a hard-working and genuine politician, He was leader of the DLP when I was at school there, and was able to persevere through several political defeats to eventually win the most recent General Election and become in a position to implement his visions for Barbados as a nation.

This particular article is a really inspired tribute to the man, and he is sure to be missed by many Bajans both there and overseas. Blessings to the people of Barbados and especially the family of David Thompson.
