MY BRETHREN, AS WITH ALL MY TRENCH TOWN BRETHRENS AND SISTRENS WHO HAVE FALLEN BECAUSE OF BABYLON- YOU MAY LAY IN REPOSE, BUT YOUR SPIRITS NEVER RESTS TO HELP YOUR PEOPLE. PETER, JUNIOR, BOB, JOE, ROY, CHERRY, KYSO, DENNIS, DELROY, CULTURE OUR PARENTS, AND SO MANY MORE- I, RAS CARDO SAY THIS: THEY HAVE DIVIDED OUR GARMENTS, AND FOR OUR VESTURE CASTS LOTS. PETER,-WORDS WILL NEVER BE ENOUGH- FOR YOUR LOSS, AND YOUR TRUTHS RESONATES TO THE FOUR CORNERS OF THE EARTH TODAY AS I WRITE THIS HONORING YOU. I LOVE YOU ALL IN LIFE AS IN DEATH, AND WILL FOREVER VENERATE YOUR NAME AND WORKS. FOR THOSE WHO WERE AFRAID OR DESERTED YOU AT YOUR MOST URGENT HOUR OF NEED, I WILL RESERVE MY DECLARATION. FOR THOSE WHOM YOU FED AT YOUR TABLE. FOR THOSE WHOM YOU TOURED AND PLAYED OUR REGGAE MUSIC WITH. FOR THOSE WHO WERE ONLY ON YOUR BANDWAGON, BUT SHOWED YOU NO LOVE NOR LOYALTY. FOR THOSE IN THE MEDIA WHO CREATED A CLIMATE OF HOSTILITY TO MAKE YOU FEEL LESS THAN EQUAL OF THOSE WHOM WE WERE TEACHERS AND MENTORS TO IN TRENCH TOWN DAYS. FOR THOSE WHO SOLD YOU OUT- JAH ALMIGHTY WILL BE THEIR JUDGE. THE TRENCH TOWN CREW AND MY FAMILY WEPT AT YOUR PASSING, AND THE TEARS NEVER CEASE TO FLOW. I REMEMBER HOW MY MOTHER FELT. THE EVIDENCE I HAVE IS DAMNING! ALL THE KILLERS STILL ROAM FREELY IN OUR MIDST. YOU SPOKE THE TRUTH, AND PAID THE ULTIMATE PRICE. I, RAS CARDO WHO KNEW YOU WELL, WILL SEE THE DESTRUCTION OF THE WICKED, SO HELP I JAH!
