Pebbles in My Shoes: How to Survive in Critical Times is the second episode of the new television program Family Reflections, St. Lucia’s first talk show “Oprah Winfrey style.” This episode will be staged and recorded at 2:00pm tomorrow—Sunday, March 11, 2012—at Coconut Bay Resort and Spa in Vieux Fort, St. Lucia.
The first episode of Family Reflections was staged and recorded on February 19, 2012, in front of a live audience of 150 people at Coconut Bay Resort. It was a great success and the audience could not stop raving about it. But according to host, Mathurine Emmanuel, if the audience thought the first episode, Pains of Neglect, was great, then they have seen nothing yet, for she promises that the second episode, Pebbles in my Shoes: How to Survive in Critical Times will be even better.
Description (from review, see link below): Among the attendees in episode 1, Pains of Neglect, were former minister and Consul General, Mr. Cass Elias, representing the Prime Minister, the Honourable Dr. Kenny D. Anthony; and representatives of the Minister for Health, Wellness, Human Services and Gender Relations, the Honourable Ms. Honourable Alvina Reynolds; and the Minister for Social Transformation, Local Government and Community Empowerment, the Honourable Mr. Harold Dalson.
The main discourse of the event was a revelation and conversation on child neglect, in which Seventh Day Adventist Pastor, Mr. Dolston Morian, shared his experiences of childhood neglect with audience and host, Mathurine Emmanuel. His touching testimony brought tears to some in the audience, yet there was some laughter when, for example, he shared with the audience one of the ways he dealt with his neglect and feeling of worthlessness was to write countless love letters to imaginary girlfriends. The onstage conversation was followed by a lively interactive session as the guest answered audience questions, with a group of professional counsellors providing comments.
The Family Reflections is excited to have the public join them to help make Ms. Emmanuel’s prophesy come true, help make the show a resounding success: “Help us plant the seed that can geminate into a regional and possibly international phenomenon; help us make St. Lucia and the Caribbean a better place to live.”
