    Email: From Ronald Lammy:

    Cyril, I got to tell yuh…

    Congratulations on the seventh anniversary of Guyanese Online.

    Your work is so enriching. Friday (February 10, 2017) was a day of firsts for me – six consecutive hours from noon dealing with some critical societal issues. The well-being of Seniors are at the center of my work and today’s discussions with community representatives and academicians. ( “Total Wellness for Elders: mind, body, spirit, and economic security.” )

    After a nap, a brief check in for promised emails and my note to you, and some quiet time, I planned to return to work. This Frederick Douglass posting today (February 11, 2017) delays my start. Apart from it’s poignancy is the presentation of it in Guyanese Online.

    Your outstanding editorship is unparalleled for the range and depth of what you present weekly. You reinforce the Guyanese tradition I grew up in and give more respect every day. Awareness of the multiple facets of life can be easily gained from reading; and about nearly every subject if you wish. My mother, father and maternal grandfather are life long exemplars, from childhood, as avid readers and its benefit.

    I didn’t expect late Friday night to have Douglass’ legacy as an inspiration for the work I am doing. The myth story was the gateway reminder of his contribution and influence. Neither did I expect it to be coming through Guyanese Online. Reflecting on the depth of your work these last seven years, does,however, make me feel that I can expect more of such excellence. Keep at it and let me know how I can assist you in whatever little way.

    I have to share this with my family and especially with my offspring.
    Best Regards

    Ronald Lammy,

      Thank you Ronald.
      I am glad that Guyanese Online is serving as a positive influence to Guyanese and others around the world.
      You must be complimented for your work in NYC in various organizations that ‘dealing with some critical societal issues’.
      Keep up your good work. It does make a difference.

    Thank you Guyanese Online for bringing world news and affairs to the Guyanese people from diverse perspectives and alternative forums. Guyanese have been deprived of this for practically their entire existence, resulting in a sad state of affairs governing our understanding of critical events directly impacting our existence. But, better late than never, I say.

    Sadly, even with free press restored to Guyana under the PPP, KN is tabloid trash, Stabroek is a US/western propaganda tool, and the Chronicle remains a political aberration. At one point, I got the impression that Guyanese Online was being subject to a hostile takeover by Afrocentrics/WPA-PNCites, much like the AFC, but your better soul prevailed and ended that. Thank you for that.

    I very much do want to support your site without disclosing my identity. Do you have a paypal account? Please email me directly as I now only visit the site once a week because of work demands. Now that I am in the classroom engaging little minds, diverse viewpoints and diverse exposure to current affairs are essential to developing critical and logical thinking among children.

    Just this past Friday, I was having a discussion with one of the teachers who works with the ESOL students in my class. She voted for Hillary and this led to a discussion about what made her do so. Her decision was based on the woman vote. I asked her how does voting for Hillary made her feel as a woman responsible for slaughtering millions of women and innocent children all over the world, and whose foreign policy is the reason for the high percentage of struggling immigrant children in our community, including the high percentage of human trafficking/child sex rings. Her response was that she did not know about those things. Our discussion ended amicably but her decision was based on how women were and still are treated unfairly in this country, whereas mine was based on other issues that have impacted Guyana and other countries the US has and continues to ruthlessly and brutally destroy. For the record, Northern Virginia — home to the federal gov’t and all its excesses, and business that deal with the federal gov’t and its excesses — has one of the highest rates of child sex trafficking in the US.

    Thank you, Cyril!

    The quality and scope of the work you present weekly on this site are of the highest order. Well done, friend!

    I particularly enjoy reading the nostalgic stories told by expatriate Guyanese of their childhoods: their neighbourhoods, the open fields and the coconut groves, the wide variety of fresh tropical fruits abounding everywhere, the famous markets in Georgetown, Guyanese cuisines, playing cricket in the fields till the sun goes down and watching Test cricket at the iconic Bourda Oval — a journey down memory lane.

    I encourage others to share their stories.

    For example, what is your fondest childhood memory of Guyana or British Guiana, if you prefer? I am sure the readership will be both enriched and intrigued.

    In the above article, a poignant statistic conspicuously stands out: the number of Guyanese now living abroad exceeds that of the homeland (over one million to 750,000). Sadly, Guyana’s population has remained static for nearly a half century and there is no indication on the horizon that that will change any time soon.

    @Gigi “…… voting for Hillary …..a woman responsible for slaughtering millions of women and innocent children all over the world, and whose foreign policy is the reason for the high percentage of struggling immigrant children in our community, including the high percentage of human trafficking/child sex rings…..”

    Scary ideas……….Donald Trump as leader of the most powerful country on earth. Teachers feeding the minds of young children with false ideas.

    How do you respond to those who think you are destroying the minds of young people with grossly false information as cited above.

    Ramakrishna

    Hey Cyril Bryan,
    Congrats on your 7th anniversary. Keep up the good works.

    Thanks
