TSUNAMI OF DEATHS

SCHOOL HE TAUGHT
WISDOM TO MANY HE DID IMPART
GLADSTONE….HOW GREAT THOU ART

So many are dying. In this era of independence there is no inner dependence; The Peoples Republic of Victoria on May 24 remembered WIA who departed before his time in the Diaspora. This week too, the grossest proponents of multi- culturalism and plurality…Siggy and Premie were also laid to rest.

These comrades especially, are irreplaceable and cannot be duplicated and or replicated…. the mental machete is waved against all those who color outside of the line. The architects and protagonists of democracy and self sufficiency are being cut down like grass on Bourda Green or more recently Providence. 

The politicians have stopped paying attention but are flying in and flying out like ole-higue. There are no longer benchmarks, symptoms or seasons anymore for death. It is just a tsunami of death creating seismic changes in which we relate one with each other here, there and everywhere. My own family had to borrow tears while others had to be excluded from this curriculum of inclusion called death.

In the middle of the week Dr Gladstone Fitzpatrick Green was laid to rest in a private ceremony in Queens, NY. His resume reflects he was born in Limelair and was a senior master at Buxton Government Secondary, Principal at Bartica Secondary, Education Officer, Guyana Defense Force, Principal Kuru Kuru Cooperative College and lecturer at Guyana Management Institute.
Dr Green was 69 and was married to Ms Fleur Ainsworth. He was also a latter day author and adjunct professor of Economics at Brooklyn College. They have two adult children who have dedicated their lives towards emulating him and walking in his footsteps academically.

Some 91 per cent of those invited to the celebration of his life and times were former educators and educationists. They all had RET in brackets behind their names on the business card. And in the spirit of the spirited ganga after the official ceremony, it was recorded that the RET meant both retired and retarded.

Everyone presented a personal experience of having buried a loved one in and out of Guyana. As I write, Dr Gus Norton is back again in Guyana to bury his brother this time. In April, it was his mother.

In Cane Grove over the last weekend Sultan Lawrence Williams, Governor of the Bank of Guyana was laid to rest.

JEGGAE, a prominent musician and spiritual advisor to many deceased families, was talking about the number of funerals he has participated in. Whatever is the numerical figure for the year this year, he has played at that many home comings.

The language has also changed in his estimation. Old age, golden years, advanced age, senior citizens et al are no longer applicable. Guyanese especially are vulnerable irrespective of the traditional labels of race and age and sex et al. ASOMELLKAM.
