“Don’t be afraid to fall or to fail.” That’s the advice given by this country’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Foreign Trade, Commerce and Information Technology Camillo Gonsalves, while delivering the feature address at the 2015 SVG Community College Graduation Ceremony earlier this week.

Gonsalves told the graduating class that it matters not how often they fall, as long as they get up one more time. He further told the graduates not to fear falling, instead imagine themselves soaring like eagles with their wings unclipped to new and higher heights.
