Does anyone really 'celebrate' our Independence as a nation? What does that really mean and how does one do that anyway? I know some people like to go out and see the parades around the Queen's Park Savannah, but is that because they're 'celebrating independence' or because they just want something to do? (Last night as I drove home I heard on the radio that the Grand Stand in the Savannah will be pulled down once and for all after today's parade. This is to make way for the Government's construction of the new arts & culture structure. More construction, heavy vehicles and traffic.)
I think I'm hearing something slow and heavy in the sky. Is it the new blimp? (Just went outside
) I can't believe it! It is! It's a pure white blimp this time. How ironic that I would hear it whilst writing about 'Independence'. They have purposefully waited until Indpendence Day to launch it?! Is this supposed to be a national symbol? Is it supposed to send a message to the country that we are safe now and all is well? Is this what celebrating independence means?
