HON. DARREN A. HENFIELD, M.P.
MINISTER OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS
THE COMMONWEALTH OF THE BAHAMAS
10 March 2021
I rise on behalf of the indefatigable people of North Abaco, who have
been fighting for a long time now, to recover all that Hurricane Dorian
and now, Covid, has stolen from us—in no strength of my own but through
Christ Jesus who sustains me.
North Abaco—Mr. Speaker—fully supports this Resolution to approve the Mid-Term Fiscal Strategy Report.
please permit me to begin by extending heartfelt condolences on behalf
of myself, my family and the people of Abaco, to the families of Kevin
Murray (wife Penny), Calvon Edgecombe (Willamae and Calvin parents) and
Ferron Lightbourne (John father) and their families on the recent loss
of their loved ones.
I read somewhere that “A true friend won’t let you face tough times alone.”
so, to my friend, the Honourable Picewell ‘Soca’ Forbes, I say
publically as I have said privately, I will always be here for you. I
wish the best possible future to you my friend, brother and fellow
Island Boy. You have done your best with the hand that you were dealt.
You did well my brother, keep your head up.
of my colleagues and those closely connected to me, not many people
know that I was—like many others who were forced to live through the
onslaught of Hurricane Dorian for three (3) days—in a very bad place
mentally and emotionally in the immediate aftermath of the storm.
post-trauma of the experience took its toll on me. During this period,
my friend Brensil Rolle, the Honourable Member for Garden Hills, who has
opted to not to contest for this place in the next General Elections,
never left my side
