Happy Independence day Trinidad and Tobago! I don't mean to sound like someone who simply wants to poke and cause a disturbance but it boggles my mind that year after year we celebrate independence and yet still don't truly comprehend its significance... We take so much for granted and still suffer from the same inadequaces that stifle social and economic growth... just think about it for a moment
