Jamaica celebrates 52 years of independence today, August 6, 2014. The past 52 years have been full of ups and downs, sparkling moments of glory as well as humbling moments of despair. But whatever the circumstances, we are thankful for our little island in the sun.
Today, as we look back on the journey to independence, we reflect on how far we have come and how much we still have to accomplish. Happy 52nd birthday, Jamaica! Here’s to making great strides this year and beyond.
