I know it causes incredible controversy and stirs up emotions in Bermuda but to me [and many others as well] it is a no-brainer.

It is the Blue Halo – an idea stunning in its simplicity that would put Bermuda on the world stage while at the same time enhancing our attraction as a tourist destination.
