missing last week are safely back
home with their families.
Shoba Persad Ok they done jam-
ming....welcome back home young
ladies, glad to know allyuh safe....
but next time instead of worrying
your parents to death plz let them
know where allyuh going.
Shirley Thomas These young-
sters need to be grounded for
Debbie Mikey I think these run-
away girls should be placed in some
kind of institution; they make it bad
for other girls who may be dead,
which the police may think they
gone with their man.
Kristopher Moti I don't even
bother to think twice when I see
missing reports of these young girls.
Kaaren Briggs I think some kind
of disciplinary action should be tak-
en towards these children for wast-
ing police time.
Sadia Singh Happy for dem...
They went, had a good time and
now they come back..
Madonna Brandon .....until
they ready to go again! Seems like
they taking turns, another two
might go missing this week!
Christeen Ramlochan Commu-
nity service for 6 month...
Jacqueline Benjamin All these
young women need to be giv-
en community service in funeral
homes for wasting the police time,
that should make them think about
Ann Marie Sankar So who were
Sharmila Dancerholic Holass
Paul I am so fed up of these little
girls wasting the police and public
Marcia Bartholomew They
went by there man or boyfriend
and parents stressing about that.
No control in the home, no love, so
what they expect?
Donations delivered to poverty
stricken Guanapo family
Laughter filled the dilapidat-
ed home of the Baash family at
Height of Guanapo, Arima, on
Good Friday as non-profit or-
ganisation, Foundations 141, de-
livered a van load of food stuff,

Donna Gooding Henderson
Nel Ramp Wish there were more

to my eyes, so good of them to help.
People we need to love and help
Ann Ballack So nice keep up the
good work, God is watching us all d
time and we need more loving and
kind hearted people.
Judy-ann Mohammed Amidst

ing to some of the comments there

Aiesha Smith Thank to these

cious name, may Almighty Jehovah

bers who came to this family's res-
cue. God blessings.

Jacqui Tyson Thanks to Stefan
Jugmohan's Foundations 141, and all
those who contributed.
Fernando Dos Santos There are
many families in Trinidad that are in
need and many more individual on
the streets, but most have too much
pride to ask for help.
Warning from IDB expert: Trini-
dad is shrinking
Trinidad is shrinking and
changing as it becomes increas-
ingly vulnerable to storms,
flooding and other natural
disasters which cause coastal
erosion and the retreating of the
Matthias Rambally This is why
we should reclaim land like Florida
and make our country bigger.
Anderson Khan Time to start
the backfilling...forget expensive
Simone Thompson Rueanna
Haynes Girl, .like we don't have a
clue! There are measures they can
take to try to protect the coastlines.
But like we are not doing anything.
Rueanna Haynes I wish I could
say that it is cluelessness, but it
isn't. The government and succes-
sive governments are well aware of
what is happening but, as usual, are
taking their cool time with policy
responses to address it.
Julia Clarke What does poli-
tics have to do with this? Science
taught us that in small islands every
thousand years the sea gradually re-
claims land. What our Environmen-
tal people needed to do is make this
a priority and start finding ways and
means to expand vulnerable areas. It
was done successfully generations
ago in Port-of-Spain and environs.
We need to get busy instead of talk-
ing nonsense about who is in Power.
Nigel Dale Bisram I observed
30-40 feet of land was covered by
sea on my return to where I once
grew up after 11 years!
Ash Sara While what is occurring
is a natural yet unnatural phenom-
enon. It is the responsibility of the
government to protect the coastline
from erosion by remediation strate-
gies. But is not their responsibility if
you build your house on the coast-
line. That's your business.
WEB CHAT ...from our Facebook readers
"Laugh when you
can, apologize when
you should, and let
go of what you can't
change. Kiss slowly,
play hard, forgive
quickly, take chances,
give everything and
have no regrets.
Life's too short to be
anything but happy."
