Letter: My condolences to Net News and Desmond Seales' family

Published on Tuesday, July 6, 2010 Email To Friend    Print Version

Dear Sir:

It is very sad to hear the news that Desmond Seales, publisher of Caribbean Net News, died just recently. For those of us who like to write and express our views and opinions in the newspaper media about issues that affect us in Caribbean region, Mr Seales gave us the opportunity through his media outlet to write and express ourselves.

Caribbean Net News basically is the best newspaper in the Caribbean. It gives writers the opportunity to write critically, and to send positive message across to readers who are interested in social, political and economic situation in the region.

Personally, as an individual who likes to write about various social issues that I think are important, I am thankful to Mr Seales for creating such a medium that gives me and many other writers the opportunity to express our opinions through the electronic media. Some of us cannot get such a privilege to publish our writings in the various Caribbean countries we were born, due to political reasons such as petty politics based on political lineage.

My condolences go out to Mr Seales’ family and to all staff members of Caribbean Net News. I hope that Mr Seales’ legacy lives on within his newspaper institution, because his role in Caribbean media is definitely a good example for other newspaper publishers to follow. May he rest in peace.
