Sad times

Dear Editor

Re: Daytime fight behind RSA Nightclub goes viral

This breaks my heart! 

Women are becoming more and more violent. Why is that, I wonder? Or have they always been, we’re just more aware because of social media?

And men? 

Why couldn’t you exemplify the leadership of “chieftain” attributes or is that a thing of the past? Our handsome, strong, intelligent men are no longer our protectors, our peacemakers, leaders, providers, priests? Aye, I must live in the dream world eh?

I understand it’s a few that ruin it for us, but I appreciate the freedom and responsibility of reporting because our Samoan culture, our health, and existence depend on it. We can focus on solutions to make it a better clan and island for everyone.

I wonder, do they get prosecuted with a video clip such as that in the islands?

Is it possible to get data to do case studies? on violence among women in Samoa? I wonder how difficult it is to get statistics, if it’s getting worse?

May God bless us all. :) 

Good day...
