Happy Independence Day Jamaica

1 Comment

Today, Jamaica celebrates it’s 48th birthday of independence and as Yardflex reflects we wonder just what has changed?

Coming out of the Tivoli Gardens upheaval and the State of Emergency it is clear that we still have a long way to go in controlling crime and getting this country to a crime free status.

The sad state of the economy with many losing their jobs, businesses down, makes you wonder after 48 years where is the real growth.

But today, let’s not think about the negatives, think about what the country has accomplished. We have some of the greatest athletes in the world, live among world class citizens and it’s still a beautiful place to be.

Let’s celebrate by being a part of the various activities across the country today and in the midst of it all breathe a word of prayer for the leaders and the people of this beautiful nation.
