In Praise of JAMAICA
A MESSAGE FROM THE AUTHOR
Dear Friends of Gerry,
I met the founder of Communities Empowerment Network, Gerry German several years ago in Jamaica – he is married to my cousin Patsy – and since then I have been ever so impressed with his extra-ordinary energy and dedication to his cause of justice and respect for others – especially the downtrodden and the defenseless.
It is my great privilege to honour Gerry for his life of good works during Black History Month by donating my book – “In Praise of Jamaica” to those who have helped Gerry in his work as well as those whom he tried to reach with his message of “Peace and Love”.
In writing “In Praise of Jamaica”, I wrote specifically to help inspire our youth of Jamaican ancestry as I have grandchildren in Canada who knew little before this of the heroic achievements of Jamaicans – past and present, at home and abroad.
Gerry, I believe, would appreciate this gesture as I know he loved Jamaica and what “In Praise of Jamaica” stands for – respect for one’s Ancestry as well as respect for others.
