LETTER OF THE WEEK

Be patriotic!

Herleen Emily, Nadi

As a concerned youth of this country, I have seen the lack of interest in youths towards our nation.

Today, when we critically analyse Fiji, we are amazed with the developments that have taken place in a relatively short period of time.

It is hard to make people understand the phase of development Fiji is currently going through.

Isn’t this visible evidence of how Fiji is and what it has offered the people of Fiji?

Some people make intolerant comments against this country. They say that Fiji is already in so much debt and that tourism is the only means of revenue and that if tourism collapses, Fiji’s economy will also collapse.

People further question, what is the Government doing about it? Ask yourselves what are you doing about it?

Rather than finding a solution about it, people are going around making negative comments about Fiji. This beautiful island nation has catered for different cultural groups who are permanent residents in Fiji.

I still cannot understand why people make negative comments about Fiji on social media and other platforms. If you don’t like what Fiji is offering you, don’t go around making an issue out of it.

Every country has its flaws, no country is perfect. It’s the people living in the country who make life harder to be lived. One should be always proud of their country and be patriotic. Be proud of Fiji and what it has offered you from birth.

This land of beauty; respect it like your mother.

Invasion to South Lebanon

Alex Waqalevu,  Lautoka

I read with interest the extract from the Republic of Fiji Military Forces (RFMF) Media Cell on the story of the Israel Defence Force (IDF) invasion of South Lebanon while the Fijian battalions were engaged in peacekeeping.

Lieutenant-Colonel Laisenia Tuitubou now the Minister of Sports and Youths and Lieutenant-Colonel Pio Tikoduadua, the former Minister for Transport and Infrastructure  were two military officers who were part of that operation named by the IDF as Operation Grapes of Wrath.

That happened back in April 1996 as the Fiji Sun reported.

We would like to thank them and their Commanding Officer Lieutenant-Colonel Wame Waqanivavalagi for their bravery.

This took place 21 years ago.

Thank you Fiji Sun for publishing the story.

Optional cadet training

Kirti Patel,  Lautoka

I think it will be much better if schools can have cadets as an option. Some students, because of various health reasons, cannot participate and also all do not follow the same interest. Discipline is instilled in many ways and cadet training is just one of them.

Vinaka minister

Narayan Reddy,  Lautoka

A big thank you to the honourable Parveen Bala for reducing the Lautoka Market fees. I am sure most of the vendors appreciate what you have done for them. On the same note Mr Bala, can you help the ratepayers by reducing town and city rates? I am sure a lot of people will appreciate a drop in the town  and city rates.
