Three days ago, in celebratory mood, we observed the 55th anniversary of our nation’s independence. Some folks went to the beach, others partied at home, some made sure they attended the formal celebrations at the Queen’s Park Savannah and still others just limed the day away. That’s how Trinis usually spend their Independence Day holiday.
