Hurricane Maria

On September 18, 2017 at 8.30 pm Hurricane Maria hit Dominica as a Category 5 Super-Storm

The devastation to our beautiful Nature Island is mind-numbing. About 60 lives have been lost so far and people are still missing. But if I know anything about Dominica, it is that the people are STRONG. We will rebuild. We will recover. We will see the beauty of the Nature Island once again. It will take a lot of hard work, and a lot of help from the international community.

The final stanza of our National Anthem sums it all up for me:

Come ye forward, sons and daughters
Of this gem beyond compare.
Strive for honor, sons and daughters,
Do the right, be firm, be fair.
Toil with hearts and hands and voices.
We must prosper! Sound the call,
In which ev’ry one rejoices,
“All for Each and Each for All.”
