By Aaron Humes: Rt. Hon. George Price still has much to teach all of us, says P.U.P. leader John Briceño.
After an official tribute on Thursday during National Service Day, the Leader of the Opposition outlined key values and lessons he wanted to help impart to the younger population.
“We know that our children need to understand that the only way to succeed in life is hard work. The values of Christian love, love for one another, working together; that unity brings strength. The issue of honesty – honesty with your friends, honesty with your family, honesty in your work, and even honesty in government, when you are serving the people in Government. These are some very important values that we should not allow to be forgotten and this is what Mr. Price taught us. And he always ended that as public servants, and as servants of the people, we are here to serve – we are here to serve everyone. And we need to ensure that especially our younger generation can understand that and truly appreciate what Mr. Price did for this country, what he stood for, and why is it that we must keep the legacy of Mr. Price alive,” Briceño said.
The great man led a party that was not short on competition – he took over after a brutal split in 1956 and fended off challengers even after going out of government in 1984.
Briceño said he relies on the principles of working for building a better Belize, which grounds him as it did Mr. Price, and emphasized unity over disagreement. It is, he said, what makes the party great – there is no time to rest, only the constant work of keeping a balance between interests.
