Dear Editor,

People need to stop blaming the government for everything. It's us as a people killing each other. We have a choice to do good or bad.

The police cannot cover every corner of Jamaica, what do we expect when we don't let our children attend church, when we start adopting other countries methods by not allowing parents to discipline a child the old fashioned way, what do we expect when we take discipline out of schools. Wake up Jamaica.

It's for us as a nation to realise that we're responsible for our nation-building. We have to stop being cowards.

The morals of our society have died, it first starts from the parents and how they raise their children, it’s also our responsible as community members to look out for each other by mentoring someone when they're being led astray. It’s time to stop being selfish and self-centred we used to care we need to start again it takes a village to raise a child. If we follow or fore-parents we can never go wrong.
