Commentary: Guyana should come first and then… – By Leonard Gildarie

The Story within the Story… Guyana should come first and then…

A dear friend of mine and her family are here on vacation. She has lived in New York for the past two decades, has her own small business, and a daughter in college. She is seriously thinking of coming back here.

For many Guyanese living in Queens especially, life is tough in the private sector. Several small businesses along Liberty Avenue have been forced to close because of a drop in sales and the fact that more efficient and less costly services are being offered by the deep-pocket competitors.

It would mirror what is happening in the region and in Guyana, and drives home the reality that we are not alone in the world.     Continue reading
