New Year’S Address Of Prime Minister William Marlin

Fellow St. Maarteners,

Residents of our beautiful island,

The year 2016 is now bound for the history books as we enter 2017 with joy and hope, with excitement and enthusiasm, determined that this will be our best year ever!

And as we bid the Old Year goodbye, we cannot but realize that being alive to see the New Year is in itself a huge blessing, for so many who began 2016 with us did not make it this far. We remember them with affection and pray that the good Lord will have a place reserved for them at his right hand.

If one word could describe the year 2016 it probably would be “transition.” Not just because life itself is a transition, but also because transitions can be painful and shocking and even full of chaos Read more
