As a Bahamian American, I am immensely proud to celebrate two days of Independence: American Independence on July 4 and Bahamian Independence on July 10. On these days, both young and old alike, come together to commemorate the event with great fervor and enthusiasm. Our forefathers and foremothers worked tirelessly and made great sacrifices for the freedom of these nations. Additionally, each day serve as a reminder of the great cultural and historical legacy that we ought to preserve and cherish.
For Americans, we encourage our readers to make a meaningful difference in the lives of our American and military families, please consider these useful links and ideas:
For Bahamians, 50 years ago our forefathers and foremothers fought tirelessly, made sacrifices and was victorious in securing our nation's sovereignty and successfully earned the right to determine its own destiny. This 50th Independence is a momentous and joyous occasion filled with gratitude and pride. The 50th independence was celebrated with extravagance throughout the country to demonstrate values, culture and resilience of the Bahamian people. The Bahamas' celebration included multiple activities with participation and support from a number of dignitaries from the United States and other allies around the world. Two of the activities were the extravagant Golden Jubilee Gala held at the Governors House and the long-awaited Bahamas Games. We are proud of all of the participants of the Bahamas Games. Congratulations to all of the winners of the Bahamas Games.
Happy Independence to the United States of America and the Commonwealth of the Bahamas. May both nations continue to cherish and protect the hard-earned independence fought for by their forefathers and foremothers.
Blessings to our nations and our people!

On World Population Day, July 11, 2023, let's take a look at the state of the care economy in the United States.
World Population Day is an annual event that serves to remind us of the importance of population dynamics and the importance of providing quality care for all people. This year, a more thorough examination is being conducted on the care economy in the United States—a sector that provides an invaluable service to our society, but is often undervalued and underfunded. Exploring the current state of the care economy, the challenges it faces, and how we can improve it.
The care economy is an important and growing issue in the United States due to the aging population and lack of care workers, making it difficult for people to participate in the workforce. The older population is projected to grow rapidly, which will make it difficult for many seniors to remain in their homes due to affordability, accessibility, and health service issues.
Comprehensive policies and strategies, such as expanding aging-friendly housing options, rental assistance, home repairs, and accessible residential design, can help seniors age safely and comfortably in their homes and communities. During this World Population Day let’s recognize the importance of the 'care' economy and take steps to ensure that it is supported and strengthened.
We know the world is aging and subsequently need services to care for our elders. Let's be cognizant of the services that are needed and consider how we can fill the need to provide these services. Learn more about how to offer services to care for seniors on our website at www.deveauxgroup.com.
