  2. Who writes these reports? “Antigua and Barbuda rocked by earthquake on Boxing Day” seems a bit over the top for a quake measuring 3.8. A journalist’s greatest gift is to report events factually, without exaggeration or drama. I wonder how many citizens even perceived that there was a tremor! If Antigua and Barbuda truly “rocked”, only the dead would be unaware of its occurence!
    Get real.

  3. While corrupt men try everything to stay in power God speaks. In the twinkling of an eye the economic powerhouse can be reduced to rubble.
    Yes we are to live, occupy, achieve and multiply. Just always remember that your end could be any moment.
    Don’t matter who you are -rich, poor , Christian, sinner, ruler or the common man. Any moment can be your call. Life is fragile!

  4. Will never forget the “sunshine government” terrifying earthquake that rocked and WRECKED OUR ECONOMY!!
