Courageous. Inspired. Self Assurance. The story of Josephine M. Yorke (Senator Yorke), is a classic of an American and Caribbean heritage. Uprooted from the unspoiled island of Carriacou, Grenada, West-Indies, in the village of Lower St. Pierre, the child born Josephine Muriel Allert according to her birth certificate from Carriacou, Grenada, would t encounter any shattered dreams of what she witnessed of what her mom's in-laws, Mr. and Mrs. Emmanuel Allert, physical and verbally abused their daughter-in-law, Victoria Bedeau-Allert. In a household shattered by violence and emotional strife by Emanuel(Poppen) and his wife Josephine(Madee). But fate stepped in. The growth and success of my life preserved when I read and met some powerful strong women of all races to focus on Christianity and a direction I should turn to. Sometimes I have listened to their teachings and I am happy I was able to have turned back to the bible teachings they have taught me. The older women and powerful women of yesteryear are so very wise with wisdom. I truly thank them for their wisdom of kwledge and of higher learning. Strength and Survival stepped in. My strength always comes from the High Power of God. Life of Strength and Survival is a reward from the Great Power of God. To have a tumor removed from my pancreas which was tested as benign is always a manifestation of a High Power of God. Newness of life. I have a joy in my heart to be happy, and lift my head up always when I am walking and talking. It is wrong to walk with your head down and speak with your head looking down. Always walk with your head up, and always speak with confidence. The joy of living peaceful in this environment is a joy of peace everyone should enjoy everyday, in-spite of life struggle. The joy of learning from the elderly and to give back to our homeland or the society is sacred to all.
