We must remember, and we must prevent it from recurring

Dear Editor,
The CRG extends its sincere condolences to the families and friends of the victims of the Mahdia tragedy. During this observance of the first anniversary of the tragedy — that broke the hearts of all Guyanese when the young and the innocent died in a horrific tragedy — CRG asks the Government to ensure that this never happens again. We all know what it is to be a child, and many of us know what it is to be a parent.
No parent wants to bury their children, and no child wants to see their friends die.
The use of dedicated pumps, pressurized lines, and sprinkler systems for our schools and their associated dorms is now possible and affordable in our country. We must make it a requirement, and ensure that it is made a reality in the future.
The Mahdia tragedy almost repeated itself at President’s College in the recent past. We must learn from the heartbreak, we must learn from the suffering, and we must act to make sure that it never happens again.
What good is it to have more money if it is not used to keep our loved ones safe? The members of the Government must open their hearts and their minds to do what is needed to keep all Guyanese safe. The children of our country are the best place to start. Let not their lives be in vain.
Let’s dedicate the initiative to making all Guyanese children safe in the memory of those who lost their lives in the Mahdia tragedy. Let’s ensure their memory lives on by making all of our children safe in their schools and dormitories.
Once again, we extend our sincere condolences to all those who have lost their loved ones.
