Congratulations to Heroes Day Honourees!!
Congratulations to all the persons who deservedly received national awards on Heroes Day morning, especially 11-year-old Toni-Ann Miller, for saving the lives of two boys from a blazing house in the Mount Herman Community of St. Catherine a year ago. Quite appropriately, Toni-Ann received the Badge of Honour for Gallantry. The remaining recipients also deserved their awards, right up to the level of the nation’s fifth highest, the Order of Jamaica (OJ). Quite understandably, it was a very exciting day for them as, while most of us were still savouring the last moments in bed, they were already at Kings House awaiting the proud moment when their names would be called and they would walk towards the Governor General, in full view of their friends and family present and live to the rest of the nation and its Diaspora.
We are proud of a Jamaica that recognises its valued citizens, a great legacy for its institutions to follow don’t you think?
