Giving Meaning To Your Life

The Clifton Review


The Clifton Review is a tri-weekly column that examines the question of the Clifton project along with the evolution of the war between two billionaires, the links to unsavory characters, the use of the courts for personal agendas, the involvement of a political party, and the attacks on the Government of The Bahamas.


We covered the start of this war with articles describing the battle over easement rights, the mysterious burning of a home, the blocks to rebuilding, and countless questionable court filings. This series of articles asks the needed questions and presents the arguments in full.

An individual once sarcastically summed up life as, ‘first you live, then you die’. In actuality, joking or not, it’s the way it is. And as another individual added, ‘it’s what happens in between that gives meaning to your life’.


So the question becomes, how have we given meaning to our lives? Are we living one-dimensional lives focused on trivialities? Or are we contributing in ways that are meaningful and long lasting?


As the saying in the Bible proffers ‘no one knows the hour of their death’. Doesn’t it make sense then to live lives of which we can be proud while we have the opportunity?


How trivial it seems to be engaged in petty jealousies, long standing feuds, and being covetous of lands that don’t belong to you. How ridiculous to focus so much energy on unjustly attacking others and engaging in diabolical acts. How small to spend your money on engaging in reprehensible behavior. How frivolous the Clifton battle seems.


Like we said before, this is a time and opportunity to evaluate ourselves and look at how we can be better human beings.


Given the horrific devastation of Hurricane Irma and even Hurricane Harvey, now is the time to take stock of our lives and become our brother’s keeper and do all we can to relieve the suffering of our brothers and sisters on earth—cause as the saying goes ‘today it’s you; tomorrow it’s me’.


It is heartbreaking to witness the suffering of our fellow Bahamians, our brothers and sisters across the Caribbean, and Floridians as well as those of Texas from Hurricane Harvey.
