This is a great year for your Jamaica Experience. On August 6, 2012 is Jamaica’s 50th Anniversary independence from Great Britain. The challenge for any country to gain independence is never easy, many things have to fall in place and sacrifices have to be made. It’s about the forces of the universe coming together and making the impossible, possible. After 50 years of learning to be self-reliant and experiencing some failures while enjoying some success, one thing everyone will agree on is that Jamaica has become an international brand. Jamaica’s accomplishments goes right in line with one of the island’s motto, “we likke but we tallawah”, we are small, but we are strong; resilient.
50th Anniversary celebration.
Jamaica is in need of an economical injection and there is no better time than the 50th Anniversary celebration. Every Jamaican around the world should challenge themselves and play a role in this well needed economic boost to help the country. The country would like all Jamaicans to take action and inject some life in the country’s economy by visiting and touring the island. It’s time to challenge families and invite friends to go to Jamaica for 2012. Explain the impact they could have on Jamaica’s economy and encourage them to take action and plan a visit.
Let’s visit the island and stay all around the island. Visit some major attractions as well as some local attractions. How about that store at the cross-road in your district? How about
the man and woman on the gully side selling jerk food, roast yam and more? Remember the people selling pepper shrimps on the road and all the other goodies.
