After the storm…………

Now, technically, Jamaica did not ‘get’ a storm (or hurricane) full hit. Except for the Eastern parishes that experienced the most rainfall and some sections of the corporate area. PFS welcomes you all to what we deem to be a short week indeed. We hope your productive stride was not severely ‘hit’ by the threat imposed by Hurricane Matthew.

This week’s inspirational quote comes from Dale Carnegie: “It is not what you have, or who you are, or where you are, or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about.”

PFS was impressed with the extensive coverage during the time Jamaica was under warning, by the island’s major TV stations.  We are happy, there were no reports of death and that majority of the citizens were prepared. We encourage that all citizens stay in a state of preparation; we are still in the hurricane season until November 30.  Thus far, we are happy that Jamaica has been able to recover quickly, from the halts that Hurricane Matthew imposed upon us.

To our brothers and sisters in Haiti and Cuba. We are deeply saddened by the damage Matthew has already caused and the lives it has already claimed. You remain in our prayers and we pray for a recovery that far exceeds history.

To all the teachers and aspiring teachers, PFS says Happy World Teachers’ Day!!!!  Dear Teachers: it is your day, your time to make your voice heard, for all to listen. Your day to say that you have made a lifetime’s worth of commitment to your profession, as you believe in the importance of a good education in securing your nation’s future. You are the molders of Jamaica’s young minds and you take you job seriously, remind us that teaching is an essential service, as without it, our future is directionless, a hotbed for chaos. PFS salutes all teachers for their commitment, passion and drive to the field. We couldn’t have made it this far without you all; you are Jamaica’s unsung heroes.

This year, UNESCO, calls on all countries, reminding them that the status of all Teachers needs to be improved. Improve the status of being a teacher, where it sees all Teachers getting an international level of mutual respect and appreciation regardless of their respective regions.

Also, October is the month of Observation for Domestic Violence Awareness and Breast Cancer Awareness. Throughout the month, PFS will be bringing you the highlights, as we aim to keep you informed of National and International matters.

This is our midweek’s greeting and wishing you a blessed and productive week PFS family!!!
