Minister Stuart Young, I am driven to send this plea to you, because my little girl called me on Friday and couldn’t stop crying. I wasn’t able to hear all of the conversation but I was able to get just enough to know that she has reached her breaking point.
Mr Minister, whilst I understand that her situation is not unique in any way from any of the other people out there also experiencing serious uncertainty and hardship because of this pandemic. Please, believe me when I say that I fully understand that this government needs to look at the safety and well-being of its citizens.
My daughter would have sent a letter requesting an exemption on more than one occasion. She was able to send the same request again last week, and I thank heavens that she was able to do that. Because as of this week she has been rendered homeless, alone and very afraid.
Mr Minister, I don’t want to lose my daughter in this unfortunate and unforeseen situation. I want her back. I want to see our investment soar and reach unimaginable heights. So please, Mr Minister, I need my daughter to be returned to us and I need her alive. As a mother it is difficult to function when I’m not in the know. I don’t know if she has eaten, and with winter already in the air, I don’t know if she has a warm place to rest her head or if any place at all.
I am hopeful that you and your staff will assist us in ensuring that this young lady be returned home to the loving and nurturing arms of her family.
Thank you Mr Minister for taking the time to read this plea and I pray that you will be able to do everything in your power to ease this mother’s pain.
