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

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


By year end thousand of Caribbean nationals will be kicked out of Barbados by the government. While making the announcement in Barbados’ parliament, Prime Minister David Thompson declared that the levels of illegal immigrant in Barbados were unacceptably high, and is increasingly difficult to control, posing potential negative challenges to the island socio-economy.

While I agree, that no country can tolerate an unrestricted flow of person into its territory, but on the other hand, I believe the policy of expelling Caribbean nationals violates the CARICOM treaty and united spirit it stands for.

Don’t forget that it wasn’t too long ago the heads of Government, including former Barbados Prime Minister Owen Auther attending the 18th Inter-Sessional conference in Jamaica in 2007, agreed of fully implement the Caribbean Single Market and Economy by 2015 and allow full free movement by 2009.

Now five months into 2009, the dreams of free movement throughout the Caribbean have proved to be a only pipe dreams.

When are these heads of government going to understand that disaster-prone, small and vulnerable islands like ours are not blessed with natural resources that can allow us to stand alone. If we can’t find a way soon to put our differences aside, where we can swim together, we will surely drown separately in this global crisis.

What do you do if you have a dream, but everyone around you keeps telling you to be more realistic and to give up the dream? What if they want you to pursue a more “sensible” and traditional career route?

It’s perfectly natural to have doubts in life. We all have doubts, and they unavoidable. And sometimes,it’s good to be realistic, because you need to be able to analyze whether a dream is achievable or not.

You ignore them. You shut out the naysayers, and you stay focused on your dream.It’s the only way. Because in our lives, we will always have naysayers, we will always have negative people, and if we listen to them, we will never pursue our dreams.

If newly elected US President – Barack Obama had listen to all the naysayers he wouldn’t accomplish something that no other African-American could of accomplish, by becoming the first African-American to be voted as the President of United States of America.

Below are parts one and two of Obama’s Victory Speech in Chicago; now here is a man who knows a few things about pursuing dreams…Yes You Can!
