    I was reading an news artical in Thursday Chicago sun-time that
    Bob Marley's Wife (Rita Marley) to Rebury Reggae star in Ethiopia

    The legend Bob Marley wife plan to exhume his remains in Jamaica
    and rebury them in his "spiritual resting place" Ethiopia
    no date is final or set but will be after February when the month long
    celebration of his 60th Anniversary birthday both Ethiopia church and
    government support the project, Bob Marley was born 1945 in St.Ann
    parish in Jamaica he rose from the gritty shantytowns of Kingston to
    global stardom , his lyrics promoting (one love ) and social revolution
    made him an icon in developing countries worldwide , Rita say Husband
    will be reburied in shashemene , about 155 miles from Addis Ababa
    Bob was an devout Rastafarian , a faith in which followers preach oneness
    with nature growth of hair uncombed into dreadlocks ,
    Also what said Bob Marley life was about Africa not Jamaica , she was a
    Jamaica singer born in Cuba who married Marley in 1966
    stated how can you give up a continent for an island and this was his
    mission for his remains to be in Ethiopia his spiritual resting place and
    with the 60th anniversary birthday of Marley the year is right and time
    together with African union and the U.N Children's Agency Rita has
    organized celebrations in Ethiopia including a concert on Bob Marley's
    birthday Feb 6 and to be held in Addis Ababa...

    my question is what do you think or take on this and moving his remains
    from where he was born to Ethiopia ???

    Hmmmm

    I was thinking the same thing too..why move the body after all this time. I bet Bob could care less where his body lies for he has gone on to the *soundin like Eddie Murphy* Uppa roooom!!! I mean was the body unhappy in it's original resting place???...and how does she know that Bob feels the same way now as he did prior to his death about being close to Ethiopia now that he can see the whole world from the other side??? Heck he might wana be in Vegas or something.....

    it do bring about question but also if she desires to move him and feel
    better doing so i guess is cool but after he passed away in 1981 why
    she didn't do it then ..

    Do you feel he's home in Jamaica where he was born at as his resting place ??

    this was a very deep and suprising to me when i first was reading it but now
    if he was close to Ethiopia why not return back as his final resting place ?
