    We in The Bahamas have a great deal to be thankful for as we celebrate our 34th anniversary as an independent nation. We most certainly must give thanks to God for blessing us with three Prime Ministers who shared a deeply rooted commitment to democracy and the freedoms that it guarantees the citizens of our country.

    There are striking examples of former British colonies that have not been so fortunate. All we need do is look at the continent of Africa, where Ghana became the first former British colony to be granted independence in 1956 after Great Britain decided that its once boastful claim that “The sun never sets on the British Empire” was no longer relevant in a global community in which colonialism was fastly outliving its usefulness.
