By Aaron Humes: The start of today’s briefing on the COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) preparation efforts was briefly given over to the developing double tragedy of two children losing their lives to gun violence in the last few days.

Five-year-old Kia Herbert was shot dead while sleeping with her mother at home early on Tuesday; four-year-old Dominique Rhamdas was fatally injured in the shooting that took the lives of her parents, Philip Leslie and Shakira White, on Sixth Street in North Side Belize City Sunday night.

They were remembered by CEO in the Ministry of Education, Youth, Sports and Culture Deborah Domingo, who pledged the Ministry’s support for their families, teachers, classmates and intimates as well as those children of the lost Belize Defence Force soldiers killed in a helicopter crash off the Western Lagoon at the end of February.

The loss hurts double in the case of Herbert for Minister Patrick Faber, who says that the loss of any child hits hard, but this one was a constituent of his and attended Unity Presbyterian Primary School.

Faber said his constituency office is open for any suffering constituents to receive aid whether he is there personally or not. He reiterated that parents must work first and foremost to take care of our children and make them responsible citizens.
