Words can build up or tear down. They can motivate or discourage. Words influence others and build relationships at work and personally. They can also tear down relationships.
So, when you hold an important leadership position, words do matter. It was condescending, classless, degrading to listen to the Leader of the DLP on Brasstacks referring to the Summer Nutritional Progam to assist our children as a soup kitchen.
Dr Yearwood should come back to Brasstack and issue a public apology to the children, parents, and all of Barbados.
I want the President of the DLP to know that there is dignity on the table of these so-call “soup kitchens”. These “soup kitchen” children are part of my family, your family. Barbados, these are our children.
The Democratic Labour Party is not known for offering apologies for anything, so don’t hold your breath people.
Some people are indeed born to be leaders; others are made leaders, while some just have it handed to them.
