I saw this article last night about how India will break two records if their mission to Mars launch is successful on Wednesday;
1. They will be the first nation to do it on their first try
2. They will have done it the cheapest out of all the nations that succeeded
I it made me wonder…
what great thing are we doing as a country to inspire our citizens; to make us proud and confident as Bahamians?
Was it the roads of Hubert A. Ingraham administration? Is it BAMSI or Bahamas Junkanoo Carnival?
What are we doing?
Throughout history countries have embarked on some great task, something challenging that they had to stretch to reach. And it was through the effort of accomplishing that task their identity was forged or reinforced for their citizens.
Landing a man on the moon was one such event for our neighbors to the north. But what about us…
Was it the struggle for Independence, was it former prime minister Hubert A. Ingraham’s roads? Is PM Christie’s BAMSI or Junkanoo Carnival?
I just don’t see it, but perhaps I”m missing something. You tell me; what great thing are we doing or could be doing that cold inspire this Nation?
