Some people do not assess the good in their lives, and gives too much credence to the negative. If they would only assess both, they will realize that Trinidad & Tobago is a blessed nation. I love T&T and I love our people. I will not give this up for the world!
There are many reasons to be proud to be Trini. I will refer to some of them; but don't you dare think for a moment that I have exhausted the list!
I am proud to be Trini because we are the most free country in the world. We are more free than some countries that boast of their 'freedom'!
We do not have civil strife based on race, religion or colour of skin. Every person born in this country can aspire to be the best that they want to be; whether it is in employment, business, politics or professions.
Our women are well respected; they are treated equally and they are not restricted in anyway in pursuing their aspirations.
We love our children, and as a nation we collectively ensure to take care of their needs. As for example even before birth we provide children with free health care and for life. We even provide children with free education, even up to tertiary level; a most potent gift!
Most of all we have a love for life!
This is seen by the way our law enforcement are very restrained about killing citizens, our courts are very professional, meticulous and careful about taking away the life and or freedom of our citizens.
Our love for life also manifest in the fact that we are a fun loving family, loving community. We have an abundance of public holidays, many respecting various religions and traditions of our people. During these times we celebrate together, ensuring to include the children in the celebrations.
As a country we are positioned in the best of climates, and enjoy a great economy, with an eclectic arrangement of the best people the world has ever seen!
We are well respected internationally, and especially in many auspicious fora; including but not limited to culture, entertainment, sports, finance, law, energy and diplomacy.
Whenever I see another person, in my heart I quietly say 'I love you!'
However, whenever I see another Trini, in my heart I know that we love each other!
I am convinced that by being born a Trini, I won the lottery called 'the good life!'
Being Trini is a gift that keeps on giving!
