Jamaica News:The Peace Day event

The Violence Prevention Alliance (VPA), in collaboration with its partners, was observed in a series of activities in celebration of Peace Day which is being held under the theme, ‘Peace is the Way for a Better Day’ last year in 2019.
In collaboration with the Ministry of Education, Youth and Information, and Peace and Love in Society, the VPA will engage students in Peace Day activities across the island.
The highlight event will be the announcement of the winners of the Trees for Peace.

Rev Carlyle share his opinion on the current social environment:

The Jamaican society first needs to recapture the essence of respect for persons and institutions of authority if the country is to make any progress in its fight against crime and violence, according to Reverend Astor Carlyle of Webster Memorial United Church.
Preaching on the theme ‘Healthy Parents Promote Parental Dignity’, Carlyle anchored his sermon on Exodus 20:12 (New International Version), “Honour your father and your mother so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you,” during Sunday’s regular weekly 9:45 a.m. service at 53 Half-Way Tree Road, St Andrew. He told the congregation that Jamaica had moved away from God’s commandment by allowing unruly children to have their way and their say in matters where they ought to have been guided. It is a situation for which the country will continue to pay dearly, he said.
