Change out of Personal Tragedy

first_imgIt was early the next morning when I felt the death of Joe Kesselly which was the day after his burial. When I was at his widow Kathleen’s residence her three children were playing outside the house. The atmosphere at their Bushrod Island home was quiet. “How is it going with you, Kathleen?” my voice was evidently hollow, for the incident of my friend’s death and the result of emptiness that followed had filled me with disgust. I knew his widow was going through more painful moments than I was feeling.“We are trying,” Kathleen said, pulling a chair for me to sit near the window in the room.  Suddenly a pang of fear gripped me as my mind reflected on the death of my friend. Though his sudden death was not due to being an Ebola victim, the authorities refused to release his body for the normal grieving period and then burial. But was I angry because his remains would be cremated? No, on my life. “Jimmy,” she said, Kathleen’s eyes wide as tears began to gather, “my husband does not even have a grave…” I did not want her to get me into tears, for I knew I should remain stronger at this particular time to offer some comfort out of this tragedy. “I can understand how you feel, Kathleen,” I made an attempt to encourage her but I knew that though her late husband was my friend, I could never feel how much she was feeling. “Think about the children and be ready to stand up for them.”  With her teary eyes, she said, “I am trying, Jimmy,” and she looking at me directly she nodding, and grabbed the edge of her lappa and mopped the tears from her eyes.   “Sometimes,” she said, “I feel so weak.” That was true and anyone who had suffered the recent Ebola scourge could testify to that, for the desolation and depopulation of Liberia was far beyond anyone’s expectation. What compounded our experience was the increase in the number of victims.  “It is a national tragedy,” I told her, “but I am convinced that there is a tragedy that should have some meaning for all of us.” She looked away, and it was like she did not care about what I was talking about.  “I don’t like to listen to the radio these days,” she said, “and neither do I want to read newspapers with pictures of suspected Ebola victims…they make me feel so bad.”  “I know how difficult it is for all of us,” I said, with assurance, “but we must remember that there is God who cares about us.”  Looking me in the face, Kathleen asked, “Where is he?” “Where is who?” “God.” Her question, as a result of my mentioning God’s name, pushed me to the wall. I began to examine her question in my mind: Where is God? Did he care about us? If yes, how should we understand this tragedy in the wake of our desolation? I could not resign myself to frustration and therefore went ahead with some well-thought out ideas. “I know you may have heard about revelations by some churches that the current tragedy is here due to some sins we have committed,” I said. “But,” she retorted, “is that not true?” “Not really true in the complete sense of what some people may claim to have received revelations or visions,” I said, being careful not to create any disaffection with her. Moving away towards a chair in the center of the room, she said, “Are problems in this country not grave enough to bring God’s anger on us?”  It was interesting to me because she was making sense of the tragic situation in the country and its attendant deaths, but to reason that there were crimes enough in the country that might have engineered the current crisis was beyond me.  I said, “Kathleen that there are corruption and other problems in Liberia there is no question about them as they are in other countries.  “I’m sure you are also aware that there are countries in the world that have made it legal for a man and a man to marry and a woman and a woman to marry?”  “Yes,” she said. “And this is a practice that many Christians will never agree to doing in this country since the Bible reports the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah when residents there engaged in such a practice.”  “True.”  “And yet such nations are some of the wealthiest that many of want to run to. But at the same time they may have their own problems but not the kind of destruction that we are going through with others claiming it might be of God’s anger against us.”  “I think you’re right about that.” I was glad I was making sense of my position and gradually drawing her up to appreciate the source of the current Ebola outbreak in Liberia.  By now I felt my legs were getting heavy and therefore I lifted myself from the chair and began to walk about the room. At the counter at the far corner of the room, I picked up an old newspaper, and began to thump through it and shockingly I saw pictures, copied from the internet of Ebola victims in the Congo. “Kathleen,” I said, “It will be unfair for God to punish us, simply because some Liberians are involved in the subject we talked about.  “Please remember that when the angels were sent to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah Abraham was able to get God to agree not to destroy the two cities if there were five righteous men in the two cities.”  “Yes,” she said, “I remember that.”  “Therefore,” I said, “while the presence of Ebola virus in Liberia is too much for us, it is also in Sierra Leone, Guinea, Nigeria and Senegal. It does not make sense for us in Liberians to conclude that we are suffering because of our sins.” “You make a good point there,” she remarked, and with a smile, said, “it is therefore reasonable to conclude that while many of us have lost loved ones, it is not God who is punishing us.”  “I kind of agree with you,” Kathleen said. I then saw the opening, and admitted, “Exactly the point,” I said, “So while we are faced with such a tragic situation, the best we can do is to remain comforted and determined to fight it to the end, using our five senses.  “Many others may die but that should not weaken our determination to follow all recommendations put out by the medical community.”  In the end I was happy that I had brought some sunshine in her life. And pushing the matter further, I placed emphasis on an important area that I was convinced could comfort her more.  “Kathleen,” I said, “you are aware that several families are destroyed by the Ebola virus and you might have heard about the Imam whose body was bathed and the devout members used the water to wash their faces for blessing that led to their deaths?”  “I am aware of that,” she said with murmur.  “Should it not give you the more reason to be thankful to God?” “I think you’re right,” she said, “by following the instructions released by the medical community.” “You’re right about that,” I commended her, “The fight against the Ebola virus is not over and with our country receiving global support we should be able to defeat the virus very soon.  “Our attitude must be to remain positive that we can overcome this tragedy by working along with the authorities to ensure we are successful in the end.”  Kathleen moved to sit on the chair next to mine and I saw a smile wedged at the corner of her mouth. I could not fail to recognize the apparent clarity that she had gained at the end of our discussion, and she promised to join the fight to save what was left of Liberia.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Man found guilty of sexually assaulting 7-year-old boy

first_img… gets life imprisonment, chance for parole in 2047A 12-member jury on Thursday afternoon unanimously found Mark Campbell guilty of two counts of sexual activity with a child that was left in his care by a mother who was working at nights. The type of sexual activity in which he engaged with the male under the age of 12 was penetrative in nature.It will be 30 years before Mark Campbell could see the light of the outside worldThe first incident occurred sometime during the month of September 2011 when the lad was just seven years old while the second sexual act with the same young boy took place on July 20, 2013, when the child was eight. Both of the crimes occurred at a community in West Demerara. The jury returned the verdict after some two hours of deliberations, and Campbell begged the court for mercy after having claimed that he did not receive a fair trial.“Since the day I enter this court and see how everything was going, I knew I couldn’t get a fair trial,” the now convicted man expressed. Unrepresented during the course of his trial, Campbell said that his family did not assist him in obtaining legal counsel, adding that it was “very hard to know” that the jury found him guilty.Presiding Judge Simone Morris-Ramlall responded to his comments, saying that the court was not inclined to grant him mercy given that he violated the boy in the worst possible way and did not even show “one ounce of love” when the victim testified on the stand earlier this week.“It was as if you were talking to a stranger. This court must send a strong message to others who may want to carry out such acts,” the Judge noted.After the sentencing was over, Campbell was escorted by Police out of the courtroom and he attempted to hide his face from the public. He will not see the outside world for at least 30 years after which he will be eligible for parole.A total of six witnesses were called by the prosecution to testify in the trial. The case was led by State Counsel Seeta Bisundial in association with fellow Prosecutor Narissa Leander.last_img read more

Police kill armed bandit following robbery

first_imgA 19-year-old was shot and killed by Police on Saturday morning, hours after he robbed and assaulted a Zeelugt, East Bank Essequibo (EBE) couple at their home.Dead is Noel Kissoon, called “Kevin”, of Lot 808 Zeelugt New Housing Scheme, EBE. He was killed during a confrontation with lawmen, who had gone to his home to arrest him for the robbery.Dead bandit: Noel “Kevin” KissoonAccording to reports, a Zeelugt, EBE husband and wife were at home in their veranda relaxing at about 19:00h on Friday, when the lone gunman pounced on them. During the ordeal, the bandit was able to relieve the couple of an undisclosed sum of cash, four cellphones, two gold bands and a finger ring. He then gun butted both victims on their head before escaping.The matter was reported to the Police and the couple was taken to seek medical attention. They were treated and sent away.Meanwhile, at about 05:45h on Saturday morning, acting on information received, a party of Policemen went to the suspect’s home. However, upon their arrival, Kissoon came outside brandishing a handgun and he pointed the weapon in the direction of the ranks reportedly in a “menacing manner”.The ranks on scene opened fire, discharging a round that hit the teenager in the lower region of his abdomen. He was rushed to the Leonora Cottage Hospital and was pronounced dead on arrival (DOA).It was reported that the ring, which the female victim was relieved of during the robbery on Friday night, was found on the dead man’s finger, while the other stolen items except the cash were found in his Zeelugt house.According to the Police, Kissoon was a known character and had been previously convicted for breaking and entering and larceny.Moreover, at the time of his death, the teenager had four pending matters before the court for robbery under arms, rape, and possession of narcotics. Additionally, he was wanted for several recent robberies and also for an alleged indecent assault of a female.The body of 19-year-old Kissoon is presently at the Ezekiel Funeral Home awaiting a post-mortem examination, which is expected to be conducted on Monday.last_img read more

Midget Petroleum Association Flyers get much needed win against Sexsmith

first_imgThe Fort St. John Petroleum Association Flyers were back on home ice after nearly a month of playing road games. After winning eight in a row during the pre-season, the team had lost six straight on the road leading up to Sunday’s game against the Sexsmith Vipers.Lane DeRose got things rolling for the team after a fortunate bounce hit the skate of teammate Lance Aylward. Aylward got a second assist in the opening period after setting up Tyler Bueckert.The team increased their lead to three after a shot from Tyler Bueckert resulted in a rebound chance for Reid Jacobs who found the back of the net.

The Flyers rounded out the scoring when when Kyle Robinson found the back of the net.Next on their slate is a game in Dawson Creek on Saturday.last_img read more

Six football droughts that MUST end some day! Spurs, Wenger, Everton and more

first_img Eden Hazard scores against Hugo Lloris Chelsea v Tottenham Hotspur is live on talkSPORT on Wednesday 3 December 2014. Live stream the game here. Tottenham Hotspur head to Stamford Bridge for a fixture the Lilywhites haven’t won in 24 years. Here, talkSPORT looks at some seriously long sporting droughts…Tottenham v Chelsea – Spurs haven’t won at the Bridge since 1990A total of 18 Tottenham managers have come and gone since the last time Spurs won at Stamford Bridge. Gary Lineker’s header separated the sides in 1990, but with Chelsea playing their best football in years, most people are predicting Tottenham’s winless streak in West London will continue. A small plus Spurs fans can take from this fixture is that they have avoided defeat in four of the last six league meetings.Germany v Italy – World Champions haven’t beaten Italy in a competitive gameThe 2014 World Cup winners may have won the world title four times and the European Championship on three occasions, but they have never beaten Italy in eight competitive matches at both tournaments. Italy beat Germany in the 1982 World Cup final, knocked them out of their home World Cup in the 2006 semis and most recently sent Joachim Loew’s team packing in the Euro 2012 last four.David Moyes has never won away against the Premier League’s ‘big four’ (with apologies to Man City)In 12 years as a Premier League manager, David Moyes failed to win a single away game against Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool. That’s a total of 49 games without a win against those sides away from home, including 30 defeats. Real Sociedad fans will be looking forward to their trip to Real Madrid in February 2015, then!Wenger’s record v Mourinho: P 12, W 0, L 7, D 5, F 6, A 21Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho have something of a combustible rivalry, although some might say it is too one-sided to consider them real rivals. Last season Mourinho labelled Wenger a “specialist in failure”, while this campaign the pair were caught up in a shoving match as Chelsea beat Arsenal 2-0 at Stamford Bridge. And it is Mourinho who has a massive upper hand over his French counterpart in terms of results. Wenger’s Arsenal have come up against Mourinho’s Chelsea 12 times now and haven’t picked up a win, home or away. Mourinho even dished out a 6-0 spanking for Wenger’s 1,000th game in charge of the Gunners.Liverpool v Everton – The Blues haven’t beaten their rivals away since 1999It’s not far to travel, so Everton can hardly blame fatigue, but they must be getting tired of leaving Anfield without three points. It has been 16 games since the Toffees last claimed a win on the other side of Stanley Park, when Steven Gerrard was just a fresh-faced youngster trying to break in to the Liverpool team. Can they beat Gerrard’s side at Anfield before the Liverpool skipper retires?Liverpool v West Ham – Hammers haven’t won at Anfield since 1963To put Everton’s Anfield record into perspective, consider West Ham’s attempts to claim victory on the Reds’ home patch. To credit the Hammers’ support, despite not having won at Anfield in 51 years, the away allocation is always full… and certainly full of hope and expectation. When you realise that the last West Ham team to take three points away from Anfield contained Bobby Moore, before he’d won the World Cup, it’s fair to say they are long overdue that elusive victory. 1last_img read more

Chelsea leave it late as Yedlin own goal kills off Newcastle

first_img0Shares0000Chelsea’s Belgian midfielder Eden Hazard scored the opening goal at Newcastle (AFP Photo/Lindsey PARNABY)NEWCASTLE, United Kingdom, Aug 26 – Chelsea required an own goal from Newcastle’s DeAndre Yedlin to maintain their 100 percent start to the Premier League season as the Blues ground out a 2-1 win at St James’ Park on Sunday.Yedlin deflected Marcos Alonso’s shot into his own net in the 87th minute to settle a match that had threatened to end in frustration for Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri. Earlier, Chelsea needed a penalty from Eden Hazard to finally breach a black and white wall erected by manager Rafa Benitez, whose defensive approach succeeded for 76 minutes.The Newcastle manager acknowledged the massive gap in quality between the two sets of players, packing his defence and granting Chelsea the ball for 80 percent of the game.It was possession that they were unable to turn into goals until Fabian Schar’s challenge on Spanish defender Alonso produced a penalty.Newcastle responded with a goal from Joselu in a rare attack and looked set to steal a point before Chelsea’s last-gasp winner made it three successive victories for the Blues.Benitez will say his approach was justified and it acknowledged the gap in quality between the two squads.Before this game he earmarked Sarri’s team as genuine title candidates and even gave them the edge over Manchester United, Tottenham and Arsenal, so Benitez was never likely to go toe-to-toe with Chelsea.Jorginho, a player Benitez bought while he was in charge of Napoli, prompted intelligently in midfield and Hazard, starting for the first time this season, twisted and turned as he probed for a gap in Newcastle’s defence that often featured nine men in front of keeper Martin Dubravka.But too often, Chelsea failed to find a way through and were particularly frustrated in the first 45 minutes.Hazard placed two shots wide, while Antonio Rudiger and Pedro was also off-target before Pedro finally forced Dubravka to make a save.– Dramatic finish –It was a satisfying half for Benitez, who saw his side create two opportunities on the break when Kepa Arrizabalaga had to save from Jacob Murphy and Salomon Rondon wasted an excellent chance by heading wide.At the interval, Newcastle must have sensed they could collect at least a point, a target that appeared to be more difficult before the start when Benitez was forced to rule out two of his most influential players, Jamaal Lascelles and Jonjo Shelvey.The official line was that both were injured, although there were unconfirmed rumours that a training ground argument between Lascelles and Benitez had prompted the manager to leave him out.Benitez insisted, however: “Shelvey has been playing with pain, we tell him you cannot carry on with pain because it will stop him. Jamaal came in with ankle problem.”It meant four of Newcastle’s summer signings were starting a game for the first time in a line-up and two of them — Schar and Federico Fernandez — were at the heart of Newcastle’s defence.Both performed well, particularly in the second half when the pattern was the same but Chelsea delivered more crosses towards Alvaro Morata as they started to run out of patience.Rudiger almost made the breakthrough when he powered a shot against the bar in the 72nd minute, shortly before Hazard’s penalty.Even the most optimistic Newcastle supporter must have feared the worst, but Joselu’s 83rd minute header offered them hope before Chelsea won it in dramatic fashion.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Guardiola proud as ‘fearless’ City save title bid

first_imgBut they rose to the challenge in thrilling style, beating Liverpool for the first time in five meetings thanks to Leroy Sane’s superb strike in the second half.Sergio Aguero had put City ahead in the first half and although Roberto Firmino equalised after the interval, City held their nerve with a courageous display that had Guardiola singing their praises.“I am proud of them. We knew that it was a final today, if we lose it is almost over,” Guardiola said.“All credit to these incredible players. We had a lot of pressure but we were not scared, we had no fear.“We beat an incredible team. We were outstanding from the first minute.“Liverpool don’t concede goals, and we scored two. We played with courage, so aggressive in our pressing.“We are happy for this victory to reduce the gap. Everything is open.”Guardiola reserved special plaudits for Aguero after the Argentina forward scored his 250th career league goal with a sublime strike in the 40th minute.City’s all-time leading scorer has now netted in all seven of his home league games against Liverpool.“We need Sergio Aguero in these games, his quality makes the difference,” Guardiola said.“To win these games, he has done it all his career and his finish was incredible.”Aware that a defeat would have put the champions in deep trouble in the title race, Guardiola urged his players to use their vital victory as a springboard to pile further pressure on Liverpool.“Now we are four points behind them and they are the leaders. We have to fight a lot, but this gives us a lot of confidence,” he said.“We knew that if we won we would be in contention to fight for the Premier league, if we lose it is over.“I don’t remember a league so tough, there are so many huge contenders fighting for the title. It is closer, every game is a final.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000In a funk: Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City have lost three of their last four Premier League gamesMANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Jan 4 – Pep Guardiola saluted his “fearless” Manchester City stars after the champions kept their Premier League title bid alive with a vital 2-1 win over leaders Liverpool on Thursday.Guardiola’s side had no margin for error as a defeat would have left them 10 points behind the Reds and in danger of surrendering the title they won in record-breaking fashion last season.last_img read more

GOALS GALORE! 8 teams have scored 100 or more this season – who are they?

first_img 8 8 Joint 7th: Arsenal – 100 goals in all competitions so far this season* – click the yellow arrow above, right, to see which other European clubs have scored 100 or more goals so far this season – Spearheaded by the goalscoring exploits of Alexis Sanchez and Olivier Giroud, the Gunners have all but confirmed their top four spot and have an FA Cup final on the horizon. 4th: Paris Saint-Germain – 110 goals in all competitions – PSG may have been unceremoniously dumped out of the Champions League by Barcelona, but they have still scored a lot of goals. With an attack that boasts the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Edinson Cavani and Ezequiel Lavezzi, it’s hardly surprising. 8 3rd: Bayern Munich – 117 goals in all competitions – The runaway Bundesliga winners wrapped up another German title last week, while recent destructions of Shakhtar Donetsk and Porto in the Champions League have also added to their tally. Arjen Robben, Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller have all reached double figures in the league for the Bavarians. 8 Joint 5th: Chelsea – 105 goals in all competitions – The worthy Premier League champions have received criticism for their ‘boring’ approach to games, but their goal tally suggests otherwise. Eden Hazard and Diego Costa are both around the 20-goal mark this season. 8 8 8 Arsenal’s 3-1 victory over Hull on Monday night was not just significant in the Gunners’ quest for their highest Premier League finish in a decade.The Alexis-Sanchez inspired win, and the three strikes in a dominant first half performance, helped Arsene Wenger’s side rack up 100 goals in all competitions this season.In doing so, they became the eight club to reach the landmark across Europe this campaign.talkSPORT has compiled a list of the leading eight clubs, starting with the Gunners.*All statistics correct up to and including 4 May 2015 Joint 5th: Sevilla – 105 goals in all competitions – The reigning Europa League champions have a shot at retaining their crown after reaching the semi-finals. Colombian striker Carlos Bacca has only been outscored by Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Antoine Griezmann and Neymar in La Liga this season. 8 2nd: Real Madrid – 147 goals in all competitions – Comfortably second, unsurprisingly due to Cristiano Ronaldo’s influence. They are still on course to become the first club in history to retain the Champions League, and Gareth Bale, James Rodriguez and Karim Benzema have all ably assisted the Ballon d’Or winner. 1st: Barcelona – 157 goals in all competitions – Barcelona’s front three took a while to get going but in recent months, they have become arguably the most potent attacking line of all time. Between them, Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar have plundered over 100 goals, while Ivan Rakitic has also contributed from midfield. Joint 7th: Wolfsburg – 100 goals in all competitions – The wheels have come off in recent weeks, but Wolfsburg have emerged as Bayern Munich’s main rivals in the Bundesliga. They started 2015 like a house on fire, with Bas Dost and Kevin de Bruyne particularly sparkling. last_img read more
