Good Reasons



Good Reasons



One of the best things about living in the Caribbean is being part of a multi-cultural society. So many different people have settled in the Caribbean and brought their diverse cultures and traditions. Some of us are of African descent, Some of Northern European descent, and others of Asian descent. Other peoples have come to the Caribbean since and more come every day. Imagine how surprised I was when I heard a Russian accent a few years ago from a pair of guys living on my small island temporarily.

Recently the Chinese Embassy of Barbados sponsored a "Fish and Dragon Festival" right here. The most heartwarming thing was seeing how much the Barbadians embraced the new culture. It felt like a moment of sharing.

I once heard a beautiful quote: "We don’t inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children." While it was made in reference to keeping the environment sustainable, I’d like to think it also means leaving the earth better for humanity in every way possible. I saw these children, one Barbadian and One Chinese, playing together so happily that afternoon. I imagine that while their cultures may be different, children everywhere are the same fundamentally. Playing, making fun, running around…being happy. Or we hope they get to be happy.

So the real purpose of events like this one, isn’t just for the adults to learn about new cultures. It’s to be able to build community ties so that these little ones get to grow up better for it. Here’s to the next generation…

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend, dear friends. 😉 To my American friends, wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving!
