    LET US SEE HOW WE CAN IN SOME WAY BRING BACK SOME OF THE NICENESS THAT WAS JAMAICA BEFORE THESE HORRIFIC VIOLENCES AND KILLINGS OF THE 60′s, 70′s, and yes the 80′s. I KNOW WE CAN HEAL OUR NATION WITH A REGGAE EDUCATION. LET US MAKE SURE THAT OUR REGGAE CULTURE AND HERITAGE IS NOT STOLEN AWAY FROM JAMAICA.
