Kudos to the people of T&T

Imagine the heated political campaign we recently saw yet election day was as peaceful as anyone could hope for.  Our nation has many problems but when it really matters out people show our true colors.

God bless T&T.

I was making that same point to a friend this morning.  I voted in Tobago.  Drive to airport, catch mih flight, drive to work, drove home in the evening....and the entire time people (on both islands) just went about their business normal, normal and I thought wow!!......the one thing we could be proud about is that no matter what, we still somehow are able to keep our heads about us.....

Or yuh shoes burst off,
You could still jump up when music play.
Old lady, young baby, everybody could dingolay...
Dingolay, ay, ay, ay ay,
Dingolay ay, ay, ay..."

in fairness to the political leaders, none of them called for violence or acted like they were encouraging it either.

I dunno what people carrying on about, this is not the first high-stakes election we've had... Trinidad just don't have that type of history, scattered incidents (like Alicia Hospedales having paint thrown on her) aside.

Bakes its just an acknowledgement of the fact that even at points in time when we seemed to be getting all worked up, in the end we simply do what we have to do and be over with it.....I remember Bourbon posting that he found the tension prior to the election to be at a fever pitch and thought that the place might explode after election day.  In response, most folks acknowledged exactly what you've posted wrt to our history and didn't see Bourbon's scenario playing out.  Still, its good to note that quality about us ever so often......IMHO....

Ahem, ah know yuh meant Trinidad and Tobago..... ;D
