    I am from St. Croix but my Great Grandmother is from St. John and it warms my heart to see how my cousins in St. John are standing up for themselves. As they say you can only be abused if you allow yourself to be abused. Go St. Jonians Go! If only St. Thomas and St. Croix would stand up in force. Then we could get WAPA the hell out of the VI !!!
