The Book

The day is almost here
June 25 is near
That is the day I step out
Oh boy will it be a big shout...

To all the Mothers in this world....and to my special Mom (Averline Beckford)

Mothers are the place where love
Emerges from the earth,
And happiness rings out like bells
In honor of our birth.

Mothers are the sun that lights
For life our inner sky,
So we may know that we are loved
And need not question why.

Mothers are the moon that shines
Upon our black despair,
So even when we weep, we know
That someone's always there.

Whatever fear, or stress, or pain
Might them to anger move,
We know that underneath the storm
We have, always, their love.

Sports for social development

When we think about a social programme, reference can be made to a group that at some point will try to secure itself a privileged position over another. Experts refer to that as social exclusion. My argument today will focus on social inclusion.

One activity that has the greatest potential to create social inclusion is sports. Sports unify people of all races, colour, creed and political persuasion (or it should) as in the thrill of victory all celebrate; or even in the agony of defeat all mourn the loss from varied perspectives.

Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) now has history at its finger tips if it can have the second under 17 team (boys) qualify for the world cup, scheduled for South Korea. Jamaica edged USA three goals to two...coming from a 2 - 0 deficit at half time.

Jamaica scored the first goal in the 78th minute...again in the 82nd and from a penalty in time added on. What an unbelievable win that was which saw the first time a Jamaican team beating the USA in any age group in football.

Jamaica beats the USA in netball frequently.
