Dr. Eric Williams- The Father of our Nation

Dr. Eric Williams was the first Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago. He was awarded the Trinity Cross posthumously in 2002. His contributions to this nation are numerous. In his address to the nation on our first day of Independence, Dr. Williams said:

Whatever the challenge that faces you, from whatever quarter, place always first the national interest and the national cause. The strength of the nation depends on the strength of its citizens. Our National Anthem invokes God’s blessings on our nation, in response to those thousands of citizens of all faiths who demanded God’s protection in our Constitution.

Let us then as a nation so conduct ourselves as to be able always to say in those noblest and most inspiring words of St Paul, “By the Grace of God, we as people are what we are, and His Grace in us hath not been void.”
