September is quickly slipping away and before we know it we are in October. Guess it is as the saying goes, when you are busy time sure flies. You could say we are quite busy with all the activities surrounding this month as it’s our Birthdayyy!!! Well it feels like it’s a birthday as we are all excited about Independence. Yes! September is the month of our Independence, Saturday 19th to be exact. A milestone in our walk to prosperity some may say or even a nation bound for greatness. Whatever your take on it, I am sure as a nation we are all happy to be free of outside directives. Independence is a time when we reflect on our past, the journey to our present and the predications for the future. This year’s theme “United In Building a stronger Nation” can remind even the youngest resident of just how far the nation has come over the past 30 years and instil that drive to continue building and advancing the nation. Okay!! Sorry I have been holding back my excitement, people St. Kitts sweeeet and Nevis niceee. We nation moving on and like we ole people use to say “me luw me land”. Look at how the national colours are creatively used to decorate everything. I mean inside the stores, on the buildings, on the people, in our hairs, on our nails. I am talking about the colours of our flag: the green – for our rich fertile soil, the yellow – for our year round sunshine, the black – for our African heritage, the white stars – symbols of hope and liberty and the red – for our struggle from slavery through colonialism to independence. Talk about national pride with our motto “Country Above Self” we stand as many hands forming one nation our beautiful St. Kitts and Nevis.
St. Kitts and Nevis, pioneering the way forward for Caribbean nations. I personally want to say Happy Independence 32 to St. Kitts and Nevis you are a nation among nations. St. Kitts I love you, love you all the time. Me nah know bout you but me love St. Kitts and Nevis bad.
Happy Independence 32!!
