legends of jamaica

I’m not gonna lie, it freaking hurt to see Usain claim the bronze behind Gatlin especially but he is and will always be a LEGEND.

Usain has done SO MUCH for our little island. Had us hearing our anthem on the world stage so many times, had us proud, had us coming together in the streets in joy and excitement. We will always remember what he’s accomplished and what he’s given us. The Legend. The G.O.A.T. We’ll miss you.

“Babylon is everywhere. You have wrong and you have right. Wrong is what we call Babylon, wrong things. That is what Babylon is to me. I could have born in England, I could have born in America, it make no difference where me born, because there is Babylon everywhere.” ― Bob Marley
