Be careful with ideas

Dear Editor,

 

Re: Tourism industry celebrates 

I quote “ Samoa is on her way to exponentially increase the visitors to fill our hotels and human vestments will trickle down to strengthened our value chains within our communities.”

Se fa’amolemole, ne’i sala se Gagaaemalae ia alofa ,lafo I fogava’a aua e poto le tautai ae sese lana atu i ama. 

Just referring to these two words human vestments, simply because of it’s meaning in the human reproduction system, po’o sua ola o le tagata, I le itu pa o tamaita’i ma le itu pa o ali’i pea fesootai mo le taimi muamua lava lea ua atia ai le afuafu o le tamaita’i tulou lo’u gutu ma le afi.

But nonetheless I’m generalising the statement as looking into more on human capitalism rather than the need to balance what the population can deliver as a whole instead. 

Be careful of imposing ideas that will result with our people becoming just numbers, loosing sight of us all being human and therefore loosing sight of knowing that we all have different capabilities and uniqueness which contributes to the beauty of Samoa and vibrant culture and religions that is pulsating through its people.

Faafetai.
