He is a great man and I am so proud to be his grandson.

Sorry i missed The Cabinet. Enjoyed the commentary. Well said.

RE: Sir Durward and re-education in Bahamian history: The Pindling era was so successful at educating Bahamian school children post 1967, to think that only blacks were/could be Bahamians,
I found that as a lecturer at COB, it was an uphill struggle for the class to take on board the idea that Sir Durward was the first Bahamian to win an Olympic gold medal. I am glad his medals will be part of the National Museum of Bahamas. This is a noble gesture of patriotism, on Sir Durward's part, and a sign-post in education by example.
