Queen’s birth­day

Ame­natave Ya­con­isau, Suva

The great­est gift that the Bri­tish gave us is our love of equal­ity and lib­erty. We have gone through much but these val­ues have kept us from break­ing even nat­u­ral dis­as­ters can­not have its ways. The fond­ness of Her Majesty the Queen of Bri­tain and Ireland Queen El­iz­a­beth is re­flected by her to­ken of as­sis­tance to Fiji dur­ing the af­ter­math of Trop­i­cal Cy­clone Win­ston. The in­vi­ta­tion of Joji Ma­rau, the Head of Me­chan­i­cal Engi­neer­ing at FNU and his Adi Eta ca­noe for her 90th birth­day cel­e­bra­tion, is a re­flec­tion of her predilec­tion over her for­mer colonies in­clud­ing Fiji (FS 18/5/16). The Fi­jian mil­i­tary band is also in­vited to per­form amongst oth­ers. What a priv­i­lege to be amongst the elites of Bri­tish Com­mon­wealth so­ci­ety. Long live the Queen.
