By now we should realize that for Jamaica to truly flourish, the nation's trust must be restored; in the police, the politicians and the media. One approach to achieving this might include an island-wide initiative aimed at mobilizing Jamaicans to increase their level of communication and collaboration; addressing issues of national interest, encouraging the support of law and order, and imploring a sense of personal accountability (An initiative formerly prescribed by members of the Jamaica Diaspora).
There is much yapping going around in all media about Jamaica’s 50th year of independence; the so called jubilee year! Yet despite all the warm and fuzzy feelings that the political directorate and their media wizards are trying to conjure up, reality looms ever so closely, neigh threaten, in the daily lives of ordinary Jamaicans. The image we see is a beleaguered people; hopeless and despairing.
