no days off

Bob Marley was shot in his home just two days before he was set to headline a free concert to help unite the political factions in Jamaica. He was warned of more violence if he appeared on stage.

However, he refused to let the threats of violence or his poor health deter him, and ended up delivering an inspired performance before 80,000 of his countrymen—one of the most impactful shows of his career.

When asked why he still played the concert even after being shot and threatened, Bob explained, “The people who are trying to make this world worse aren’t taking a day off. So how can I?”
