EDITOR, The Tribune
JUST a thought: As reality sinks in and we reflect on the effects of the non voters, DNA voters and the "sold out" voters, had in the outcome of the 2012 general election, one can see that with their "help", our country lost a unique opportunity to move forward and out of this third world existance.
In trifling around with our right to vote, it was somehow forgotten by many that we were supposed to choose a government, not a celebrity, to run our Bahamas, and so consequently we lost our most worthy leader. In accordance with our history, a nation of pirates, we traded him in for fools gold. Which left him no other choice but to depart with honour, after having fought for us as if we were a great catch. Mr Ingraham must know in his heart, that he did give his all to our country, even though it didn't seem to matter in the minds of the masses.
As the curtain closes on this "world's stage" and the actors retreat, we are left with a sense of puzzlement. Wondering if perhaps there should have been an alternant ending. Some may go so far as to say "a do over". The fact is we can't. We will have another opportunity to vote in five years, but we will never have another leader like Mr Hubert Alexander Ingraham.
Thank you, Mr Ingraham, for your love of this, our great Bahamaland.
Proud to be Bahamian.
