We are indeed blessed today as we can say that we have come through yet another Atlantic Hurricane Season safely and with very few effects on our shores. I think the entire Virgin Islands can feel immensely grateful that storms or hurricanes did not place any additional burdens upon us during what has already been a burdensome year.
It is a very exciting day for our Territory, as we witness our main airport Terrance B. Lettsome International; open its doors on the eve of the reopening of our borders to nationals, visitors, family and friends.
Mr. Speaker, a pleasant good day and GOD’s blessings be upon you, all Honourable Members of this Honourable House and all the people of these beautiful Virgin Islands — those here in the Gallery, those listening via the radio and to those viewing online – both at home and abroad, as we continue to move forward in this New Regular living and working with COVID-19.
While we understand the inherent news value of the case stemming from last week’s seizure of firearms and illicit drugs, we would urge all commenters, pundits and journalists to exercise good judgment in their coverage and discussions of the case.
