I am writing this brief but important message to the leaders of churches in Antigua. Do not only make the youth look pretty in their special uniforms when they march on the streets with the drums, but let them understand that their lives must be positives example for the other young people in our little Antigua & Barbuda.
I live at Clare Hall and some young people pass by my home to go to a youth club at the one of the churches every Saturday afternoon. Their behaviour is totally unbecoming. As an elderly person, it grieves my heart to see them behave the way they do.
I am appealing to the leaders at that church to put these young people to sit down and talk with them because people (including me) would not want their grandchildren going to that club after seeing these children’s behaviour on the streets.
Also important to address is the length of the skirts of the young ladies. Oh my. Even as I write to you my heart is pained. Why would a church club allow young girls to dress like that?
I am appealing to the leaders of the church to please address this issue as soon as possible.
Young people, God is watching us all. Antigua & Barbuda is a small nation. Let us do our best to dress and behave our best so our lives can be a positive influence.
I thank you all for listening and taking action.
