By Therold Prudent: My life has always been one of adversity, challenges, and triumph. At the age of seven, I was involved in a vehicular accident and left for dead near the edge of the Gros Islet–Castries Highway.
In the years thereafter, I faced numerous physical challenges arising from the accident; however, I finally recovered from all the injuries based on the knowledge that God had preserved my life for a very special purpose.
Some may not truly understand nor appreciate why I give of myself so freely, even amidst personal insults, as I continue to champion the cause of the poor and oppressed in our nation.
I do so not because of a need for public recognition nor a desire to benefit from future financial opportunities; rather, my actions are the fulfilment of a promise made many years ago to my mom that if I should survive this personal ordeal, I would dedicate my life to serving others. I’ve come a long way in life and have had many personal successes; however, my burning desire and commitment to serve in whatever form it is ordained will never die!
I am immensely grateful to all who have supported me along the way and served as genuine pillars of strength as I have pursued the fulfilment of my mission.
Finally, permit me to end with my favourite quote: “Some men see things as they are and ask, ‘Why?’ I dream things that never were and ask, ‘Why not?’”
