Everyone seems to be going through a hard time after the ravages of Tropical Cyclone Winston.
Telling them to be strong is like comforting people with ropes around their necks to rejoice and everything will be okay.
Life seems to be getting harder especially with people whose source of livelihood were damaged. Prices are going up and nothing is going down.
Responsibilities seem to be increasing in the vanua, church, and the Government.
Friends, relatives and friends disappoint with a ‘me first’ attitude and some are even heartless to help. On top of this there are sub-standard houses everywhere despite the promises it seems to be an elusive dream. The chance for a good education looks gloomy with the damage done. As Christians we comfort ourselves with Paul’s letter to the Romans that nothing will separate us from the love of Christ. Paul knew the power of adversity to embitter and defeat our spirit. But we are not to grumble (didi) as he warned in Corinithians1; 10: 10. Our true source of security is up there and not in trying to influence the climate.
