The winner of our Letters to the Editor column this week, Reverend Cliff Bird, believes that ‘Respect’ should not be a hindrance to reporting crimes.

He said this issue was prevalent in most Pacific Islands.

His letter titled ‘Eternal rest’ won him a Parker pen. Reverend Bird is our second weekly winner to date.

“Respect for people should not silence people who should be reporting these criminals,” he said.

“We cover up so many evil and injustices under the word respect,” he said.

Reverend Bird said respect had its place thus it was imperative to condemn cases that affected people.

“We need to start from grassroots level and that is by teaching our youngsters on the importance of attitude and respect,” he said.

Reverend Cliff Bird is the Uniting World Regional Co-ordinator which facilitates the Uniting Church’s international partnerships.
