What Went Wrong?

Our children are being raised in fear of going outside. When I was I young girl growing up in Belize the only thing that would keep me from going outside was severe thunderstorm.

I am saddened to see the severe stress and worry that our children are going through. There is the old saying that says "It Takes A Village", but in Belize our village is in a desperate state of disrepair. 

Crime and the fear it induces is driving our children indoors and on occasions they are still not safe in their beds. We need to help our children and the best way to do so is to repair the breakdown of marriage, family and community togetherness.

What a legacy we have passed unto our children!! But together we can do so much more, change is coming; it has to come.
