Many entries to the Canada-Barbados Environmental Youth Awards Programme Essay Contest

Heavy Response to the First Annual Student Essay Contest

Winners of Cash Prizes to be Notified in March

Look at the photograph above. My little brother took that photo not so long ago and it say everything about why I cry for Barbados.

The Canada-Barbados essay contest is a way of alerting Bajans to what is really happening. You don’t have time for considering everything about what is happening wid the environment, but it really really matters.

You get up every morning and go to work and come home and make some food and watch TV and go to bed and get up the next morning and go to work and come home and make some food…

We have to start looking around at our home. We spend so much government money on worthless projects. this is our home. I thank the students who sent essays in to the contest. Win or not, you are the future of Barbados and I thank you and encourage you to keep on caring for our country.

Shona.

So many student essays have been submitted to the 2011 Canada-Barbados Environmental Youth Awards Programme (CBEYA) Essay Contest, and evaluations by the judges is underway.

The CBEYA and Graeme Hall Nature Sanctuary staff wish to thank the many parents, teachers and students who responded with thoughtful essays that addressed the question:  Why is the environment important to Barbados?

Barbados wife tries to murder husband’s pregnant mistress with chemical weapons

Cheat on a Barbadian woman? You’ve got trouble!

Sex, lies and chemical/biological weapons…

On the heals of a story involving BLP Member of Parliament Rawle Eastmond’s spurned mistress who went crazy, we woke up to find that another spurned Bajan woman went a little crazy too. The problem is that Betty Bond is a microbiologist and she decided to use her knowledge of chemical and biological weaponry to murder her rival – who used to be her best friend!

Hey boys… thinking of cheating on your Barbadian wife? Time to have a Banks beer and think about what you got. Bajan women tired of all the lies.

Carol Anne Laletta Bond, (known to her family as “Betty”) a native of Barbados, lived outside Philadelphia and worked as a microbiologist. As a federal appeals court succinctly summarized the relevant facts in the case: “Bond was excited when her closest friend, Myrlinda Haynes, announced she was pregnant. Bond’s excitement turned to rage when she learned that her husband, Clifford Bond, was the child’s father. She vowed revenge.”

Full weight of law descends upon Rawle Eastmond’s spurned mistress

“Cause when you’re out with your women, your wife will be at home: Cooking your food, doing your dirt, buddy what you trying to do?”

… Eric Clapton’s “Outside Woman Blues”

Adultery carries its own priceNo Bail for Rawle Eastmond’s outside woman gone crazy

Please don’t misunderstand what I am writing to you now. No one has a right to assault anyone or threaten their wife or family even if that someone is a woman who was used and discarded by a married politician. I wanted to say that the sin of adultery carries its own cost in ruined lives. I thank my husband Marcus that he is always true to me and our children. And I want to say to my husband about him being true to me… YOU BETTER BE! Your loving wife, Shona

P.S. To the woman I say, “Rawle Eastmond isn’t worth it.” Get on with your life and never think of that two timing adultering bastard again. Don’t steal from other women. Get yourself a good man who is honest. You think if you did steal him away from Mrs. Eastmond he wouldn’t cheat on you too? Once a thief always a thief. Same for lowly pieces of trash who cheat on their childrens because that is what they do. They destroy everything.

“Well, you can’t watch your wife and your outside women, too You know you can’t watch your wife and your outside womens, too ‘Cause when you’re out with your women, your wife will be at home Cooking your food, doing your dirt, buddy what you trying to do?”

Eric Clapton, “Outside Woman Blues”
