    I just recently took a trip out of the country and met with some “prominent” peoples. A gentleman asked me what was the name of my Prime Minister. For a while I couldn’t recall his name; I just said, his name is Don. “Don what?” responded the gentleman. Don Nation, I answered. :lol: :lol: :lol:

    The Japanese have suffered more than most in recent decades two atomic bombs, major earth quakes, Tsunami’s, Nuclear meltdown and volcanic eruptions all of which occurred in the last 10 years (except the atomic bombs). Yet they still keep their composure and like the majority of Dominicans culturally come together in time of need. This gift is truly a blessing to DA! just don’t under any circumstances allow them fish in Dominica ocean waters… they will kill all the sharks whales and dolphins and destroy the ecosystem. Apres bondeu c’est la terre… our culture has preserved our land, seas and fresh water. There are many standing in line to exploit it.
