  • That is why after 25 years away in the US I would not put my damn foot on that soil again . They will have to use a crowbar to get me put of here. They will keep killing returning jamaicans.

  • Please keep praying Jamaica needs to wake up. We are asking for the wrath of God to be on us. I grew up in Jamaica and I as a little girl could go to river with my brothers run around without a care in the world. Now look at my home, I’m so heart broken. People please wake up we need to be our brothers keeper. We are killing each other and should these so called bad men be sent to war they would be hiding like the coward they are. So sad. There is a God and I know he will serve justice. You will be rewarded for your deeds.
