RE: First day of #mot challenge “Grateful to be Jamaican”

Hi @dmilliz
Good challenge, nice publication.
The reality of those of us who are outside or far from our countries of origin can feel a strange sensation that something is missing.
At least it is my feeling, regardless of whether we are well off where we are. The rooting to "our thing" is part of our being, I'll tell you something...

Recently I heard the Venezuelan national anthem, by chance, it was happening in a commercial place in Bogota, and they were going to play Colombia and Venezuela. Wow, it was impressive what I felt when I heard the notes of the National Anthem.
To feel proud of your country, is something we should all keep in mind, because regardless of the conditions that lead one to leave and move away from it, you will always have a part of your country in you .

Yes indeed, that lingering feeling hat something is missing and "what am I doin here pops up now and then.

I can imagine the feeling of hearing the national anthem on the TV in Columbia, anthems really go deep to our pride for our nation.

Totally agree, no matter what led you to another nation, your home country will always have a strong postion in your heart. Someone asked me a deep question the other day; “Where do you want to to die, in Japan or in Jamaica?” It through me off guard but man, the things we have to think about living away.

Where do you wnt to die, in Japan or in Jamaica?"...

I never thought about this question before. I think I never think about death, although it is something we have for sure, at some point in our lives, it is a binomial (life/death) that I don't think will stop accompanying us.

What a reflection I take with me before going to bed.
Thank you, brot.

😯 Yeah, sorry about that, but I know you know it is a good question to ponder.

No problem @dmilliz, it really is a good question, one lives immersed in it day by day, and thinks about the future, of course, but not often at that moment that you will not have a future anymore, at least not in physical condition, it really is a good question.
