    The availability of these insights of Patrick Rahming, is equivalent to having secured and put on display, a handful of gems. I am grateful. I will most certainly return to this window to look, to listen and for affirmation.

    After watching this interview and then listening to Mr. Rahming speak on education and other things on the Nation Today, I believe that he now wears another hat. He sounds like a true Bahamian philosopher with a coherent world view. He also seems to have written many essays about a number of very important topics, where can these writings be found? Is there a collection available?
