Congratulations, Gatoaitele Sano Malifa!

I just wanted to pass on my congratulation to his Afioga Gatoa’itele Sano Malifa for his new adventure.   

You have served our people both in Samoa and abroad and I am very proud to say that you are my Hero.  Your words of wisdom and guidance for a better life has helped me grow and made me re-think about my own.  

I enjoy reading your column and although I disagree with some of your political views and you have allowed me to have a different view than yours and thank you for that. 

Samoa is truly blessed with you to bring balances to our democracy by contributing to how our government governed our people on a daily basis.  

Malo lava le loto nu’u malo fo’i le faamaoni i lau tautua. 

It is my dream to return to Samoa after I am done with grad school in the USA to contribute to the betterment of Samoa.  

May God bless you Sano with strength and health and many more years to enjoy this mortal life with your family to the fullest..
