I really hope with this new government that they crack down on the guns entering Jamaica. It is sad, because we have many people who visit the country and enjoy all the beaches, scenery, Food, dancing and what have you. You have to understand though that when you leave, people who live there have to deal with the day to day living of fear.
Criminals in Jamaica have no fear. There is no fear from the police, soldiers, no one. Historically this lack fear is what gave Jamaica its independence. A proud people who would not allow colonial rule to bring them down. When you back a man in a corner though they will fight.
If you look in the many districts you see a lot of poverty. You see people who have to get up at the crack of dawn to go to market to make sure their family survives. This is a Jamaica that many do not see. As we come to the end of the year, my wish for NEXT YEAR is one of hope, peace and prosperity.
