L.A. Lewis does his bit for political peace

Written by Kerry-Ann Bercher

cdcover1.jpgSocially aware deejay ‘Seven Star General’ Horace ‘L.A.’ Lewis, concerned about election violence, Lewis held his own peace meeting in National Heroes’ Park last Thursday.

Unfortunately, not many people responded to his press release by actually turning up. But L.A., who is a trained mediator with the Dispute Resolution Foundation (DRF), remains undeterred, as usual.

He had planned to, “… enlighten the Jamaican citizens about the vision that was bestowed upon him by the Almighty Jehovah about the two opposing parties, in several of his dreams.”

During the event he spoke to the Seven National Heroes, to ask for their guidance.

Having previously released ‘The Flood Song’, in memory of the victims of the 2004 Asian Tsunami, we asked him whether he might consider doing the same for those who have died because of election violence – a plea for greater national unity.

“Now that you mention it, that is a good idea. I’m off to work on it. Check me back tomorrow.”
