White rooftops, pink sand in every crevice, impossibly large servings of snapper sandwiched between slices of sweet raisin bread, the hum of kites in the sky on a crisp Good Friday, the first dip of the year after Bermuda Day, the relentless urge to follow the Gombeys: these fundamental Bermudian experiences are an important part of what we share. But you can also find us connected in the love of family, the salty breeze on North Shore, hurricane supplies, bonfires and barbeques and our babies playing in the innocence and empowerment of true freedom. We are connected in road rash, in heartbreak, in cancer, in tragic loss, and if we’re lucky, in old age. We are loved or lonely or feeling a little lost, but we are not alone in that. We are united in Johhny Barnes, Sally Bassett, Pauulu Kamarakafego, Ajax, Mentor, Dame Lois Browne-Evans, Kingsley Tweed, Barbara Ball, Georgine Hill, in heroes and revolutionaries and ordinary Bermudians that have helped to shape our island in the sun, the island we celebrate today.
