Spoken like a true yes man

Dear Editor,

Interesting comments from Tuala Ah Him.

Spoken like a true “yes man” for the PM!  

How can you possibly say that children underage running around Apia selling things are just being kids? 

Why are these kids not in school? 

That’s where they need to be, cut your paychecks and put money in the education of our young people, for a brighter tomorrow. 

Who cares about other countries? 

Samoa is not like other places in the world!  Our families, our children, and our communities are what we value.  These are the things that matter most to us, so how is it that we are neglecting these children and allowing them to roam the streets at all hours of the morning and the night? 

Yes, where are the parents, where are lawmakers, where are the pastors who usually have sessions with these children at their homes?  So, shame on you, Mr. Ah Him for spewing such an ignorant statement - kids being kids!
