Student’s essay appreciated

The story Brac student wins essay contest (Caymanian Compass, 28 June, 2006) brought choked up emotions of pride, joy and gratefulness to share my home, the Cayman Islands, with a young man of such incredible insight and wisdom.

He must make his parents very proud.

We need more young people to share his direction of purpose in life and to be aware of the gifts God has so richly endowed us with.

Congratulations, Brendan, on your award – rightly deserved.
