Things are not always what they seem to be, but with wisdom like
Solomon of long ago; Sir Lynden O. Pindling the great and awesome
patriot drew back the curtains and opens the windows of progressive
growth and crushed the myth of the islands of the Bahamas as beholding
to the monarchy seeing the natives as "subjects" any more.
With the dawn of daylight came a new hope of freedom and equality for
all as the dark days of colonial rule for the beloved chain of islands
was sunk into the ocean where never again Bahamians would be labelled
"subjects" nor would "God save the Queen" would have to be sung by the
people, as "Behind Grey Curtains" surfaced a new anthem begun;
"Lift up your head to the rising sun, Bahama-land;
March on to glory, your bright banners waving high.
See how the world marks the manner of your bearing!
Pledge to excel through love and unity.
Pressing onward, march together
to a common loftier goal;
Steady sun ward, tho' the weather
hide the wide and treacherous shoal.
Lift up your head to the rising sun, Bahama land,
'Til the road you've trod lead unto your God,
MARCH ON, BAHAMA LAND" Timothy Gibson
Tasting freedom Bahamians quickly and judiciously governed while
directng the destiny of the nation with dignity and honor.
Meanwhile the aspirations of many people who had exhibited loyalty and
maturity earlier for the independent country was being dissected and
the true history of the people was in doubt; "Behind Grey Curtains'
thrived to tell the story of how to restore admirably order and
cohesive community endeavors for the long haul while bringing about
domestic tranquility among the people and giving a face of the trials
and issues associated with the developing history.
