Traumatic experience

Tukai Lagoinlakeba, Namaka, Nadi
Thursday, February 23, 2017

Articles in our dailies bring back sadness from the devastating memories of Severe TC Winston's destructive force that destroyed the lives of many unsuspecting Fijians.

Many loved ones have passed on, but the traumatic experience remains post STC Winston.

We have a resilient society who will bounce back and pick up the pieces to regain what was lost.

How serious are we Fijians and the world in our support of the UN's COP23 presidency through our very own PM Voreqe Bainimarama's advocacy and his passion?

Are we heeding the calls to protect our environment and to lessen our global greenhouse emissions?

Politics aside please, I believe climate change is no longer about our very own survival, our economy, food security, national security and the future welfare of our generations to come.

It is an immediate global war and threat that requires our immediate genuine collective sincere attention and action.

How many more floods, tropical depressions, cyclones and many other natural disasters do we have to go through in order for us to wake up and take things more seriously.

Fiji must be ready for more yearly natural disturbances.
