“For the members of the Christian Community, the Easter story represents the fulfillment of God’s Prophecy that Mankind would be offered the hope of eternal life through the sacrificial death of His son, Jesus Christ and His subsequent Resurrection from the dead.
“It is this faith which has kept the worldwide Christian Church alive, and enabled its followers to significantly contribute towards making the earth a better place for all Mankind.
“The Easter season in Guyana is best known for the widespread kite-flying activity that is seen by many as a representation of the theme of the Resurrection. Whatever may have been its origins, kite-flying attracts widespread participation of Guyanese, from all walks of life, regardless of religion, ethnicity or culture. It, therefore, offers another opportunity for Guyanese to share common experiences and understand each other better.
“As we celebrate Easter this year, we, in the PNCR, bemoan the corruption, crime and general moral decay that have become pervasive in our land. We call on the Government and all people of goodwill to use this season and the promise of the resurrected Christ to renew their commitment to public safety, good governance, unity and justice for all.
“Let us hope that the symbolism of our kites soaring to the heavens inspire all Guyanese to emulate the example of Jesus for the renewal of hope for the resurgence of the conditions needed for the future development and prosperity of this our Dear Land of Guyana.
“A HAPPY AND BLESSED EASTER TO ALL!”
