Jamaica “Punching above it’s weight”

Just a tad…

“Like his writing, Gladwell’s conversation is fluid, funny, and wide-ranging. Monday’s event was sponsored by Jamaica 50—an organization that is orchestrating local celebrations of the fiftieth anniversary of Jamaica’s independence from Great Britain—and so a lot of the discussion centred on Gladwell’s Jamaican/African heritage.” via Torontoist

I never pump my chest on the fact that I’ve got a Jamaican background, but that little island of 2.6 million people just keeps becoming a bigger factor in my life and the world in general.  My dad’s battle with Parkinson’s and Dementia has probably fueled that.  He talks about heading home, not Mississauga, but back to Jamaica where he was born and raised.  Wants the kids to get out to see HIS island ASAP.  Jamaica you may see me sooner than you think.
