I really do believe that every human being has serious value. I'm in most people's corner.
Elaine Brown

The true leader is one who realizes by faith that he of she is an instrument in the hands of the creator, dedicates him or herself to be a guide and inspirer of the nobler sentiments and inspirations of the people.
The leader will kindle interest, teach, aid, correct and inspire. Those who are lead will co-operate with the leader in maintaining discipline for the good of the group.
Leader will instruct the followers in the goals toward which to strive and create in them a sense of mutual effort for attaining the goal.
To sum up, there's no power on earth, in this universe, or elsewhere, that can take a clerk from a desk or a mechanic, and easily mold that person into a leader. To develop oneself, one has to develop one's own initiative and perseverance - a man has to strive in order to grow.
Educated people, will be regarded, and rightly so, as those who will have the necessary knowledge and the ability to inspire, to guide and to lead. Therefore it is for these reasons that much is expected from who ever has been given the opportunity of education, great and productive service to all mankind. It's the educated people who the labouring class, the masses look to for leadership.
A good leader is devoted to work and willingly forego even the demands of sleep to see its accomplishment. This does not mean the leader is impetuous. On the other hand, the leader maintains a balance between emotional drive and sound thinking.
Labours which sometimes appear excessive, derive from the leader's firm realization that unless a man undertakes more than that man can possibly do then that being will never be able to do all they can do. It's the enthusiasm that stimulates energy.
The art of leadership consists in the ability to make people want to work for you, when they are really under no obligation to do so.

Who are Descendants of Clarence Sancho and Mary (David) Sancho?

Are you aware of Samuel David and Mary (David)Sancho of Golden Grove? Samuel David was a Sergeant of British Guiana Police Force.  Samuel David departed in 1945 or 1946. Mary David and Clarence Sancho were married. The couple had about seven children. Much respect to Wainwright for pointing pieces of information on the David and Sancho union  to me some 43 years ago. Who must I consult to acquire the  knowledge  relative to David family  especially the descendants of  grand Uncle Clarence  Sancho?

Bertrand Aaran Abrams (1929-1969). An Unsung Guyanese Patriot

Bertrand Aaran Abrams (1929-1969).  An Unsung Guyanese Patriot “On July 21, 1954, the plaintiff was convicted by the magistrate of the East Demerara Judicial District for being on June 10, 1954, in possession of prohibited publications contrary to s. 4 of the Undesirable Publications (Prohibition of Importation) Ordinance, and fined $25 or one month’s imprisonment in default. The complaint was filed on June 30, 1954, and made returnable for July 7, 1954.”  “As the appeal against your conviction has been abandoned and the fine paid, I have to inform you that, in accordance with the ruling of the Law Officers for the breach of the emergency regulations, you are dismissed from your post as a Cl. II Assistant Teacher in Cane Grove Anglican School as from 11th January, 1955.”  - Joseph H. Jones, Manager, Cane Grove Anglican School. Opinion – I have no recollection of anyone telling Bertrand Abrams was fired as a school teacher. And for whatever the reasons offered by the colonial authorit…

John Baptiste Sanco

On Friday, March 20, 2009, I visited the New York Public Library, Humanities and Social Sciences (Research Division). I accessed copies of the Trinidad and Tobago year books for the years 1921 thru 1935. I paid particular attention to the obituary, which is found immediately following local events in the publications.

I made notes of the data of persons with the surnames of interest to me. At this instance I cannot locate the entire documentation.
In the yearbook for the year 1929 data is found telling readers that Mrs. Elizabeth Sancho, 92 years old died on November 30, 1928. I suppose she was born in either 1835 or 1836.  (perhaps, wife of John Sancho??)
In other issues of the yearbook entries listed below are included.
Mrs. Rupert Sancho died November 13, 1924 (Possibly, Chinese-Trinidadian)
John Baptiste Sanco died February 17, 1920. (I believe data will prove this John Sancho to be perhaps too young to be an uncle of Lambert Tuckness Sancho, for I am of the impression Sancho male…
