Life is not fair. Good people, in fact great people, somehow always end up leaving us so soon. For some of us, it’s been a tough few months with the loss of lives of dear ones. Multiple losses too. Trust me, I know.
Dear Editor, Re: Samoan rugby today The aura of Samoan rugby has long since left. Manu Samoa will never be a powerhouse rugby nation unless major changes are made starting from the top.
The growing number of alcohol-related deaths is alarming. Hardly a month goes by without several incidents where precious lives are wasted due to alcohol abuse and drinking sessions gone wrong. What can we as a country do to stop these unnecessary deaths? What is your solution? Ilia L. Likou asked in today’s Street Talk and this is what people said:
Think a minute… An African man who had three wives asked his Irish friend who had only one wife, this question: “Do you like your wife?” His Irish friend replied: “I like her very much!” The African man shook his head and said very sadly: “I don’t like any of mine.”
At the risk of sounding cliché, five weeks ago I could never have imagined the opportunities and incredible experiences that coming to Samoa would give me.
