  • Since returning from college, I’ve been paying attention to how casually homophobia has integrated into our lexicon. Much of it is hidden under the guise of religion, but it becomes clear very quickly that those quoting the Bible aren’t consistent in their adherence to the Word. At the first sign of any deviance from we understand to be…[Read more]

  • The more I think about this, the more I realize how drastically different our lives would be if we actually had a system of accountability. If everyone was held responsible for their actions in government, I can only imagine what our communities would look like.

  • This is a fascinating idea. So many of our students never get the chance to leave the territory to explore the world. I think that if we at least virtually allowed our students to explore new sights, it could bring deeper and broader perspectives to our dots on the map. The challenge, of course, is finding a sponsor because I couldn’t see the Dept…[Read more]

  • There needs to be a conversation about regulation within the USVI government. Questions need to be asked about oversight and conflicts of interest. A common problem, though, is that these questions will not be asked, because of a lack of oversight and regulation. It is an oft unwritten rule that one must exercise tremendous caution with whom they…[Read more]
