Letter to the Editor: FOR LOVE OF COUNTRY

Saturday, February 17th, 2018

To my son Koby, and all my free-spirited San Pedro kids that I loved…You will have a place in my heart forever..

FOR LOVE OF COUNTRY

“Oh Land of the Free by the Caribe Sea”
They sang after struggling for years
When loss became gain at St. George’s Caye
By brave British, freed slaves, and buccaneers

La Isla Bonita…This was my home
Barefoot and sunburned, so wild and free
This perfect playground was all I had known
Mangos, and sea grapes, and coconut trees

My heart still remembers nights of warm rain
Running through puddles reflecting the moon
When lights had gone out and candles would wane
Oh, childhood memories – gone too soon

The swaying palms with gently blowing breeze
The country where I first breathed life…Belize
