Promises, promises, promises. If it's one thing that this country's government is good at is breaking promises. Remember the World cup team. Anyway let's not focus on that now. Our boy Kershon Walcott has returned from London along with the other athletes and the support for him at Piarco airport was immense. The people at the podium had to shout to be heard even though they were talking though a microphone, "Not sure, if microphone was bad or Trinis are just that loud."


Trinis came from far and wide to support Kershorn Walcott on his big day after he made the whole of T&T proud. Anil Roberts took the stage with his overly drammatic speech, thanking Kershon and the other athletes for their work at the Olympics. But that wasn't the best part. The best part was the honorable Prime Minister Kamla Persad Bissesar's speech. She went up and promised a lot of things to the champ. Below is what she promised:



• NAMING OF THE TOCO LIGHTHOUSE AS THE KESHORN WALCOTT TOCO LIGHTHOUSE

• ONE OF THE NEW CARIBBEAN AIRCRAFT WILL BE NAMES IN HONOUR OF KESHORN WALCOTT

• 20,000 SQUARE FEET OF LAND

• A HOUSING DEVELOPMENT PROJECT WILL BE ESTABLISHED IN TOCO. THE DEVELOPMENT WILL BRING HOUSING AND JOBS TO TOCO

• $1 MILLION DOLLARS TO BE INVESTED AS HE DESIRES!!!!!

• HE WILL RECEIVE A HOME IN FEDERATION PARK WORTH $2.5 MILLION....

• HE WILL ALSO RECEIVE A SCHOLARSHIP AT UTT IF HE SO DESIRES. 

• HIS COACH WILL BE PLACED IN CHARGE OF AN ELITE FIELD PROGRAMME AT THE UNIVERSITY. 


• AND THERE IS MORE TO COME!!!- TO BE ANNOUNCED AT A LATER DATE.

Now I think that Kamla won't break her promises and that Kershon will receive everything that was promised, not because I believe in her, but because she has to. One of her duty's as Prime Minister is to deliver in a way that makes the country not only happy, but proud.


"If a year passes and Kershon doesn't receive everything that was promised to him, Kamla can say goodbye to her spot as Prime Minister. I'm just saying. No one's going to vote for her. So in the words of drake, maybe she won't but then again, maybe she will...LOL..We'll just have to wait and see what transpires." Quote by Trinikid.

Also Machel Montano performed songs with his going for gold being the song of interest. I wasn't a big fan of his performance, because he sounded kind of off. But small thing, it was still a great moment worth cherishing. It feels good to be a Trini, doesn't it? Kershon has made us all very proud on the 50th anniversary  of T&T. I believe that 50 years of independence marked something special for T&T in terms of change. The best is yet to come.
