image Written By : SUN FIJI NEWSROOM. It should be noted that 2008 was been a year that was both challenging and uplifting for many people. From the struggles that began with the major cyclones that hit our shores at the beginning of January to the hard wins and triumphs in the world of sports, it will always be a year worth remembering.
From ‘American Idol-like’ shows that have been made locally that have boosted our nation’s singing talents to establishing fruitful relationships with overseas businesses, Fiji undoubtedly did so much last year.
Though we still have a long way to go before we can call our country the best in the world, our dedication to the betterment of our nation, ourselves as individuals, our communities and our future generations cannot go unnoticed.
Like any year that goes by, we as a united people of this great country have had to struggle to survive in an ever changing world. Fiji has had to adapt to the events around it and still maintain the integrity of its people.
Through all the loss, through all the successes, through all the heartache and the progress, Fiji had managed to make 2008 a year worth looking back on.
In all that has happened, we recognise that we are a fortunate people to have been given so much and it is all thanks to the hardworking citizens of this great nation.
We as one united nation have brought prestige and pride and embraced every challenge that came our way in 2008. When we reflect upon the year we had, no matter what it was like for us personally, we as a nation can move forward because of what has happened this past twelve months.
So let us welcome the New Year with the knowledge we have gained from 2008 and embrace the future that awaits us on this first day of 2009.
