For those of you that have had a roller coaster week, PFS is hoping that your weekend will consist of smoother sailing stuff. So much highlights for the week and PFS will give you the top 3.
- On April 21, 2016, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, monarch of Jamaica, Head of the Commonwealth, Queen of the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand (and the accolades therein) celebrated her 90th birthday.And this is how Her Majesty’s day was spent. The monarch is apart of Jamaica’s history and in some extension our future. Over the years, she and the royal family have visited on our island on several occasions and Jamaica’s ties to Britain remain relevant. Happy Belated Birthday Your Majesty!!!
- So, April 21, 1966, four years into an independent Jamaica, saw us welcoming His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie I to our shores. The touchdown, even to this day, is remembered as an extremely convicting and powerful moment, especially told by those who considered themselves blessed to have beheld the “Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah”. This was exceptionally significant for the Rastafarian family and has history was orally passed down, made their way to the Norman Manley International Airport by whatever means available to behold the descent of such a powerful man in their ways.Fast forward 50 years and his grandson carried that torch to our beautiful shore for a second helping, a nine day visit to commemorate 50 years since the first visit.Enclosed in this link is evidence how absence only made the heart grow fonder and the enthusiasm was not diluted. Many still gathered at Norman Manley International Airport to welcome Prince Ermias Sahle Selassie. Quite an historic moment it was. Welcome to our island Prince Selassie!!!
- Today, (finally an event to report whose date has not passed) April 22 is International Earth Day. On this day around the world, every individual is encouraged to give back to Mother Earth, in just a small fraction, compared to all she has given and continues to give. Jamaica has enough rural space to plant some good amount of trees.
What say us? Are we ready to go get our pretty hands dirty for a few hours. Talk about taking it back to basics, which is very important if Mother Earth is to continue to sustain us.
Thank you for staying tune, we hope you had as much fun reading as we had writing/reporting.
PFS wishes for you a restful weekend and we look forward ti seeing you next week. #Happy-TGIF!!!
