The Caribbean We Deserve

1 min read

Predicting what millions of people from across the Caribbean deserve is impossible but I’ll try anyways.

Every year millions of tourists flock to the Caribbean for its sea and sun. The majority believe that this is paradise. But what about those who live here, how many believe that this is paradise?

I might be naive to think that paradise exist anywhere on earth but I think at least people in the Caribbean need a little bit of hope. At least we deserve to have hope that things will get better.

We deserve  a Caribbean where we don’t have to live in fear that we will be murdered; we deserve a safe place to live. We deserve a Caribbean where hard work pays off and not the “right” connection. We deserve access to clean air and water; we deserve a clean environment.

Perhaps I could selfishly go on and on but I thing at least we need to have access to our basic human needs. There are other perspectives, some goes into wants instead of needs. In the video below,produced by UNDP Jamaica, the focus is on building a better future; that 2030 vision.
