PIR = Peace I Rep = A Movement for Peace in Anguilla.
15 years ago, I lost a close childhood friend to violence. He was stabbed to death. He was one of the best people I’ve ever known.
3 Years ago, I attended a Beyoncé Concert in London. From the moment I bought my ticket to the moment I returned safely back to Southampton, under all my excitement was one very real emotion - Fear. The fear of violence. The year before was the Paris attacks. The year after was the Manchester attack at the Ariana Grande concert. Since then spaces where we typically deemed to be safe such as walking down a public street in broad daylight or attending our chosen places of worship no longer seem safe as hate thrives and violence erupts around the world.
Last night, I thought I heard gunshots in my neighbourhood and it took me two hours to calm my anxiety. We may not realise it but violence and the threat of violence affects each and every one of us daily. It affects our thoughts, our mental health, our habits and our behavior.
I rep peace because I want better for Anguilla, our young people and our future. I want to see less ‘R.I.P’ and more ‘Congrats!’. More Congrats on the new business, job, qualification etc
Too many lives are lost unnecessarily from violence including the victims, perpetrators and loved ones left behind who must find some way to cope and move forward.
The time is now to stand up and make a change! What do you rep?
To support the movement, you can purchase a shirt from @KingsoftheNation by following them on Facebook or Instagram. DM the page for ordering info.
10% of shirt profits go towards starting an after-school program at Anguilla's high school. The shirt officially launches online tomorrow Wednesday, March 20th.

I went to the gym for the first time in six months last week and my body is definitely not on board. My thighs are still swollen (silly me, I didn’t stretch 🤦🏾♀️) but I’m really happy I got my self to go!
Now we have only a few months before summer and I am determined to achieve my summer fitness goal 💪🏾 My @sudio “Regent II” Bluetooth headphones has been my best friend so far! My cardio session went by faster with my favorite playlist blasting away!
