Jamaica's National Heroes
These, our seven national heroes of Jamaica has made an indelible mark on the history and culture of our beautiful island.
We salute them;
Just thinking about a Jamaica without their combined contribution is puzzling. I suppose if it wasn't them, then perhaps others would taken on some of the tremendous roles they played, but who? and what impact would it have?
Your guess is as good as mine.
The truth is, these gallant individuals have done some of what would have been almost impossible by the average person back then, in their quest to change the social and political constructs.
They challenged the institutions of slavery, colonialism and dependency thereby changing the course of our history.I know I am voicing the sentiments of the vast majority of Jamaicans when I say, [using the words of my grandmother] 'God Bless their souls'.
Some shed their bloods and life because of the vision they shared for us. How can we repay that? We will never be able to.
Perhaps the least we can do is to show more unity and togetherness with each other and build on the foundations they have set for us to make our beloved country a beacon in the world!
Help me also say thanks also to the many other Jamaican who are playing their part, from here and abroad, to build and advance our country, they are heroes in their own right.
Today, the statues of these seven champions stands proud and tall in Jamaica national heroes Park in Kingston.
