KINGSTON, Jamaica – Today, October 21, the people of Jamaica celebrate National Heroes.
It is a day when Jamaicans give thanks and praises to our National Heroes, those who fought for freedom against the tyranny of slavery, those who fought for Universal Adult Sufferage and the birth of independent Jamaica.
Jamaicans on this day pause for sombre reflection as we remember the sacrifices these Heroes made so that the generation of today can grow and develop.
