Having heard of the loss of yet another innocent child to gun violence, the members of the Torchbearers Youth Association offer sincere condolences to the family of young Kenton Seymour.
This recent uptick in gun violence is a direct indication of the lack of proper policy and action required to protect those most vulnerable amongst us. TYA has and will continue to stand up for the rights of the youth of our nation. The loss of a loved one to violence should never be politicized. However, in ensuring the future of our young ones and the preservation of our young men and women, we alongside our Party, the Free National Movement, and the Leader, the Hon. Michael C. Pintard, call on the government to enact effective policy aimed at deterring these violent acts that are plaguing our nation. We look with expectation to the results of a complete and thorough investigation and further details from the relevant authorities.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the injured and the deceased. We pray that all the families who have suffered loss find peace, and may the souls of all those who have departed, through the mercy of God rest in peace.
Let us continue as a nation to pray for our children, educate our children, and most of all protect our children.
