Yellowman, Lawman Lynch, D’Angel and Others Uniting for Change in Jamaica!

Jamaica Unite! This is the song penned by Lawman Lynch, hoping and wishing for a new Jamaica. Fear, uncertainty and reflection have enveloped Jamaica in the wake of the West Kingston unrest. Many Jamaicans questioned how we lived and how we treat each other.

Moreover, the music fraternity has been going through its own special troubles – with another artiste, Ding Dong, barred from travelling to and performing in Trinidad just this week. Beenie Man, Bounty Killer and others have had their visas revoked barring them from the lucrative American market. It is a time to look inward, reflect and change.

Lawman Lynch, a national youth advocate, penned this song after his own car was firebombed after expressing a forthright opinion on the Prime Minister’s resignation on current affairs program, Direct. He could have concentrated on his disappointment at the postponement of his charity concert, Music for Life - for the Lawman Lynch Foundation. Instead he brought the artistes together to sing a song of hope and togetherness for this island of Jamaica. Yellowman, D’Angel, Hezron, Raine Seville, Gabriel aka Levardes, Neil Amos, Kimberley Nain, Hodari and others are all on the song. The song is being produced by Mafia McKoy of Loud Disturbance Records.

The contributions don’t stop there! Veteran artiste, Yellowman is even putting up money to get a video done. “Recognizing the importance of unity and togetherness in this time of hardship, I had to put in my contribution as well. Especially as an artiste, we in the music need to pull together now more than ever”.

To show the unity of Jamaica in the face of all that we have suffered and continue to feel, the group – Lawman Lynch and friends – is coordinating a move for all radio stations to play Jamaica Unite at the same time – next Wednesday (June 16th) at 2:15pm.

Sister Mary Margaret

SISTER MARGARET MARY, WHO WORKS FOR A LOCAL HOME HEALTH AGENCY WAS OUT MAKING HER ROUNDS WHEN SHE RAN OUT OF GAS.

AS LUCK WOULD HAVE IT A GAS STATION WAS JUST A BLOCK AWAY.

SHE WALKED TO THE STATION TO BORROW A CAN OF GAS TO START & THEN DRIVE TO THE STATION FOR A FILL UP.

THE ATTENDANT REGRETFULLY TOLD HER THE ONLY GAS CAN HE OWNED HAD BEEN LOANED OUT BUT IF SHE WOULD WAIT, IT WAS SURE TO BE BACK SHORTLY.

SINCE THE NUN ! WAS ON THE WAY TO SEE A PATIENT SHE DECIDED NOT TO WAIT & SHE WALKED BACK TO THE CAR. AFTER LOOKING FOR SOMETHING TO FILL WITH GAS, SHE SPOTTED A BEDPAN SHE WAS TAKING TO THE PATIENT.

ALWAYS RESOURCEFUL, SHE CARRIED IT TO THE STATION & FILLED IT WITH GASOLINE, & CARRIED IT TO HER CAR.

AS SHE WAS POURING THE GAS INTO THE TANK, TWO MEN WERE WATCHING FROM ACROSS THE STREET. ONE OF THEM TURNED TO THE OTHER & SAID, "IF IT STARTS, I'M TURNING CATHOLIC".
