Glen Jackson, you will always be my friend


Editor: It’s about three years since my very best friend Glen left us. I am still wondering who killed him. Everyday I sit and think about what he did for St. Vincent and the Grenadines. He made an outstanding contribution by pioneering Talk Show radio in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.{{more}}

If some can’t remember him for what he did for the Unity Labour Party (ULP), they benefitted. Why does it appear that they have forgotten him? Is it because he did it his way? I am very disturbed that enough is not being done to remember him by the ULP.

One might ask what they can do. They have all the answers left up to them. Mr. Bonadie and I paid Glen a visit at his resting place on the 6th March, 2009, and I was disappointed in what I saw. It seems nobody else paid him a visit. I say this because we put some flowers on his grave, and when I went back in the evening, only our flowers were there. Out of sight, out of mind. Glen deserves better. Oh, Lord, what kind of justice this is? Oh!, I remember it’s a scapegoat justice. I wrote about him when he was alive. Now that he is dead I will continue writing about him. That’s what friends are for. You will always be my very best friend.

I’m hoping that Vincy Mas Minister Baptiste will make an effort to have CDC mention him. Remember, he was also a culture man and played his part in the development of our culture. Please remember Glen. What about his family? How are they coping with their loss? This country has lost a good son. Let me use this opportunity to express my sympathy to Larry’s family for its loss. “May God Bless our Nation state” was his favourite quote. Thank you, Glen and Larry.
