The Peoples Labour Party (PLP) celebrates our Federation’s National Heroes Day, which is being recognised by an annual public holiday on Thursday 16th September 2021. We also will be celebrating our nation’s 38th National Anniversary of political Independence under the theme, “Adapt, Diversify, Recreate: Independence 38”.
Our Deputy Political Leader Hon. Akilah Byron-Nisbett as chairperson of the National Independence Committee continues to show stellar leadership, ensuring that all planned national activities exemplifies our faith in ALMIGHTY GOD, our national pride and the creativity and talent of our strong resilient people. This no doubt comes from our ancestors and those great leaders who came before and who we all acknowledge to be our national heroes. We appreciate the sacrifice they have made in the past thereby having laid the foundation for our present and future generations of our Federation.
The PLP’s leadership, membership and supporters will show our love, reverence and respect to our heroes by emulating their great example. Through this annual observance, we wish to remind all our people that they too can be heroes in their own right by doing their duties faithfully and with pride. By being the best teacher, nurse, parent, mentor or leader, that they can be. By giving to those who are the most vulnerable in your community, keeping our environment clean and safe to the benefit of all citizens of our beloved nation.
We will follow those who have blazed the trail of truly following our national motto of putting “Country Above Self”. We will continue to champion the cause of those who are most vulnerable in our society, especially in these uncertain times of the global COVID-19 pandemic.
Our Political Leader and Prime Minister Dr. Hon. Timothy Harris continues to be a caring empathetic visionary leader; A Big Brother to the young; A Loving Son to the elderly; An Insightful Friend to those in need and a true National Hero to our nation of St. Kitts and Nevis. Under his LEADERSHIP, we are assured to achieve and experience a “brighter, Stronger and SAFER Future”.
Happy National Heroes Day!!!
