 “He is a national hero and while the UDP and the older folk that were NIP and those that were NABR will all see him particularly as our own, the fact is he belongs to the entire country and so I think this is quite a signal moment for the nation of Belize. It’s the responsibility of all of us not to forget. Of course there is stuff that the authorities can do. We should be sure, for example, that in our schools the history of both national heroes is taught. Something like this now that we are doing under the auspices of NICH will no doubt help to assist with research and with historical memory, but ultimately Philip Goldson’s life was so extraordinary. He was such an exemplar that it behoves all of us as a country, as a people, as a nation – as a sovereign democracy to do whatever is required to preserve on an institutional basis the memory of Philip Goldson, to have this permanent record and to encourage people in fact to sup generously from this permanent record. It behoves all of us to ensure that Philip and his absolutely phenomenal life and legacy are very much preserved and appreciated by all Belizeans.”
