I enjoy traveling because learning becomes interactive. My visit to Jamaica revealed that poverty is real. In the United States people can go most of their life without seeing or meeting homeless. However, that is getting more difficult as economies remain unstable.
I was impressed with the Jamaican people, that no matter the difficulties of their struggles, the Jamaicans are a positive and resilient people. In Montego, Jamaica stands a statue of Samuel Sharpe,a revered freedom fighter against slavery. Sharpe, a leader in abolishing slavery in Jamaica, and aided towards eventual independence from Britain.
