Now as we move towards the New Year 2009, should we Banabans question our future steps and decide if reconciliation is the way to move forward.
While our elders and all Banabans dream of finally seeking justice from the governments involved in destroying our homeland and exiling us to Rabi, it is about time we think smart rather than keep repeating the same old stories and methods in resolving our problems.
We have to come to the realisation that no one will repair our homeland but ourselves. We must take the initiative and in doing so call upon all the governments and parties involved in the destruction of our homeland to work with us in achieving our goal.
Only by holding hands and working together will the dreams of our Elders be fulfilled.
Long live the Banabans.
I look forward to hearing your ideas.
