Experience Dominica – The Nature Island: Dominica Vacations | Exotic Vacations | Honeymoon Destination

Dominica weekly is a personal weblog about the nature island of Dominica.


Few persons around the Caribbean would dispute the fact that president Obama will need much luck to and acute political skills to lead America out of the second Great Depression which that country is now experiencing.

One of the many questions Caribbean leaders will ask Obama to make, is one which has the potential to affect the future of the whole Caribbean; the question of reversing America’s current policy towards Cuba. They also hope he has the wisdom to understand that change is more likely to come to Cuba if there is frequent engagement between the people of these two neighbours.

But let’s be realistic people, despite Obama’s many talents his no miracle worker.

Dr. Rupert Lewis, a professor in the Department of Government of the University of the West Indies mention recently that President Obama will not alter US policy, he will not play the “black role” and most disappointingly, they will be no major advantage to the Caribbean with Obama in the White House.

can we as Caribbean people, excuse Obama if he decides that problems affecting Cuba and the Caribbean will have to be left on the coal pot to simmer rather than placing it in the pressure cooker to boil along with major international crisis that the new Obama administration has been forced to confront.

Do you think? Will President Obama change the US policy towards Cuba? Have your say in the comments below.

Today is a great day in the history of America. Today the dream of one man have become a true – Martin Luther King, who was selfless fighter for the inalienable right of everyone to be equal to any other person. Martin Luther King was not a realist. He had a dream! And he believed strongly that it will be come true. Even he was willing to stake his entire destiny and life on a single turn of the wheel. He was killed, but his dream lives even after his death. In the hearts of millions.

Quate from the Martin Luther King Speech:

I say to you today, my friends, that in spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.”

I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at a table of brotherhood.

I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a desert state, sweltering with the heat of injustice and oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.

I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

I have a dream today.

I have a dream that one day the state of Alabama, whose governor’s lips are presently dripping with the words of interposition and nullification, will be transformed into a situation where little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls and walk together as sisters and brothers.

I have a dream today.

I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight, and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together.

This is our hope. This is the faith with which I return to the South. With this faith we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope. With this faith we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. With this faith we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day.

This will be the day when all of God’s children will be able to sing with a new meaning, “My country, ’tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing. Land where my fathers died, land of the pilgrim’s pride, from every mountainside, let freedom ring.”

And if America is to be a great nation this must become true

Martin Luther King was born in January 15, 1929. At the January 20, 2009 the Barack Obama will accomplish part of his dream.

Today is the great day for every dreamer. It is one more example, that dreams come true! People die, everybody forget them. But dreams continue to live and come to the reality.

Today the dream was accomplished by America. But if we will desire stronger and believe – it will happen that one day all nations will rise and understand… that all men are created equal…

P.S.:Dominica celebrate the inauguration of Barack Obama too: at the 12 o’clock it will be given 10 minutes of silence. And also there are many Caribbeans, who left to visit America to be more close to the great event.

Is it a remarkable coincidence, that Martin Luther King Day in the U.S.A has fallen this year, the day before Obama is sworn in a President and the ceremony for Obama takes place at the same mall King gave his now famous speech in 1963?

King’s ‘I have a dream’ speech was aimed at how one day people’s skin colour would no longer be an issue within society. Obama spent today painting walls at a centre for the homeless and young people in Washington.

Speaking to the nation, Obama said, “We resolve that as we walk, we must walk together. And as we go forward in the work of renewing the promise of this nation, let’s remember King’s lesson – that our separate dreams are really one.”

So I ask again, is it a remarkable coincidence or is it Martin Luther’s once lucid dream manifesting itself in the world?

How the tables have turned these last 46 years. A time when the colour of your skin defined you. I guess the bible connotation is true “The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner.”
