Tomorrow, Thanksgiving Day, Grenadians across the country will sit down together, count our blessings, and give thanks.
Grenadian families reflect the diversity of this nation. No two are exactly alike, but there is a common thread they each share.
Our families are bound together through times of joy and times of grief. They shape us, support us, instill the values that guide us as individuals, and make possible all that we achieve.
So tomorrow, I’ll be giving thanks for my family — for all the wisdom, support, and love they have brought into my life.
But tomorrow is also a day to remember those who cannot sit down to break bread with those they love.
So when we gather tomorrow, let us also use the occasion to renew our commitment to building a more peaceful and prosperous future that every Grenadian can enjoy.
In the years since, I have been blessed with the support and friendship of the thousands of Grenadians who have come together to continue this ongoing movement for change.
You have been there through victories and setbacks. You have given of yourselves beyond measure. You have enabled all that we have accomplished — and you have had the courage to dream yet bigger dreams for what we can still achieve.
So in this season of thanksgiving, I want to take a moment to express my gratitude to you, and my anticipation of the brighter future we shall be creating together.
With warmest wishes for a happy holiday season from us all.
