The wheels of life are turning so much faster
The restless hands of time pass me by
There are dreams I’ll never live to see
But as long as you believe in me
I’ll still feel them on the way
As I take life day by day

Don’t be the richest person in the cemetery – Food for Thought

DON’T BE THE RICHEST PERSON IN THE CEMETERY

November 16, 2014 | By Features / Columnists, Food For Thought

When we are in heaven – Our money is still in the bank.
When we are alive – We don’t have enough money to spend.
When we are gone – There is still a lot of money not spent.

One tycoon in China passed away.

His widow, with $1.9 billion in the bank, remarried his chauffeur.
His chauffeur said,

” All the while I thought I was working for my boss.
Now I realize that my boss was all the time working for me !!!  ”

Dancing in the Rain – a story about “Life”

It was a busy
morning, about 8:30, when an elderly

gentleman in his 80’s arrived to have
stitches removed from his thumb.

He said he was in a hurry as he had an

I took his vital signs and had him take a seat,

knowing it would be over an hour

before someone would to able to see him.  Continue reading

Suicide Prevention is Everybody’s Business

By The Caribbean Voice

The Caribbean Voice is a New York based NGO that has been involved in social activism since its launch in 1998. Currently it is focusing on suicide prevention and related issues in Guyana and the Diaspora and is working in collaboration with partners – other NGOs, businesses, socially conscious individuals, the media and various ministries in Guyana. Contact us at caribvoice@aol.com, NCarter2@ecommunity.com, 718-542-4454, or in Guyana at bibiahamad1@hotmail.com or 621-6111 or 223-2637. Check us out on facebook at ‘The Suicide Epidemic’.

 Here’s what we know: Guyana suffers 44.2 suicides per 100,000 persons, or about 333 plus suicides per year – the highest rate in the world. Also, at a globally estimated 25 attempts per suicide, Guyana would have over 6660 attempted suicides a year. Also suicide is the leading cause of death among young people ages 15-24 and the third leading cause of death among persons ages 25-44, while in the 15-19 age group, it is the leading cause of death among females and the second leading cause of death among males. Yet the rate, the total amount of suicides and the total amount of attempted suicide could all be much higher since empirical evidence suggests that under reporting is quite significant.
