As a nation, Jamaica first celebrated National Heroes Day on October 20, 1969, in honour of the heroic Jamaicans who, through pride and resilience, sacrificed their blood, sweat, tears, and lives to ensure that all Jamaicans today enjoy political independence, and freedom to strive for our economic independence.
