National Heroes Day

May 1, 2008

Let’s review National Heroes Day.  My understanding is that it is to be an annual holiday to honour a different Bermudian icon.  However, according to Mr. Butler a national hero may only actually be named every three or ten years.   The national committee already established for the naming of buildings will be making the recommendations to Government as to who we honour on this day.  There’s already been a big out-cry about axing the Queen’s birthday in June in order to celebrate National Heroes Day in October.  I don’t see why we can’t find better ways of paying homage to those who have made a difference on this island and leave our public holidays out of it.

Instead of paying tribute to these heroes for a single day and then quickly forget about them and their contributions; it seems Bermuda could find better ways to honour those that have greatly contributed to this island.  The Bermuda Bar Association has created a new scholarship in honour of Dame Lois Browne-Evans.  This, to me, seems to be a better way to honour her given that she was Bermuda’s first female barrister.  In addition, it means all those applying for the scholarship will read up on her, keeping her contributions alive for upcoming generations.


  1. it is really great to get government jobs because the government can give you a good job security ;-.

  2. The whole area of psychological sickness is about droppinghttp://cnatraining01.webs.com/ a sense of freedom. Once we find ourselves sure to emotional issues of our life, that we cannot rid ourselves of, we lose our freedom of thinking. This creates stress in our thoughts and our body bears the brunt of it. This lack of freedom brings up a sense of worry or a sense of helplessness. Both such emotions deliver up a sense of insecurity. Folks lose confidence in their own worth. Self-esteem turns into low. With lack of confidence and low vanity, comes poor decision-making. An individual suffers with all these circumstances when suffering with a mental illness. When a mentally ailing particular person goes to seek assist – confidence, self-esteem and sense of freedom are already lost. Instead of serving to the person grow to be independent, there is a tendency to make the person depending on medication.

  3. Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of hard work due to no back up. Do you have any methods to prevent hackers?

  14. The online gambling industry grew rapidly and there was an influx of online casinos especially
    as more and more gambling jurisdictions emerged. Unfortunately this leaves my attention open to focus on the amount of credits
    in the machine instead, and if the amount is going
    down, my vibration goes with it. Also, having every seat in sight filled adds to the
    impression of a winning locale.

  15. First off I want to say awesome blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
    I have had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there.
    I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15
    minutes tend to be wasted simply just trying to figure out
    how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Cheers!
