President elect of the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB),
Ken Gordon told young cricketers on Sunday to have big dreams
and do all the work to get to their goals, which are well
within their reach.
Occasion was the T&T Cricket Board (TTCB) annual prize
giving ceremony at the Centre Pointe Mall in Chaguanas.
Gordon told the gathering: Dont be afraid to
dream, the trick is however, developing the plan that will
make it succeed.
He gave them his own personal experiences as a youth wanting
to succeed. I started with dreams of a career in broadcasting
at a time when that field was closed to locals. Then I dreamt
about developing locally owned media to replace the foreign
owners who dominated the media scene. Then creating linkages
with regional media, working together with others who shared
these aspirationswe made things happen.
recently, our dreams about nationhood have led to the launching
of the Principles of Fairness and even as we work to make
this a reality. My dream is that we will do what is necessary
to develop a West Indies team that will win the World Cup
in 2007. So my young friends dream on and make your dream
Gordon also expanded on the work of the Principles of Fairness
committee and revealed that over 200 organisations has signed
on to their beliefs and more people are coming on board,
to rescue Trinidad and help repair the damage done by politicianswho
according to Gordon are dividing the country along racial
