PM's Easter Message
EASTER MESSAGE BY COMMODORE JOSAIA VOREQE BAINIMARAMA
My Fellow Fijians
Easter is a celebration of renewal, manifested by love and compassion for others, which makes this holiday especially meaningful for Fiji this year. Fijians have shown great unity during this past week--just as we did in January--to care for and look after our families, our friends our neighbors - our fellow Fijians.
Our collective unity in the face of national adversity will uphold the meaning of the sacrifice Jesus Christ made for humanity as an individual. Our lives too will return, and we shall strive to practice daily the tenets of love and harmony that he espoused.
Indeed, it is also important to acknowledge that Easter is a time to give thanks to those who have sacrificed for us. To those selfless individuals, business houses and non-government organisations that have shown great support for Fiji and flood-affected Fijians, we thank you.
During Easter we pause to celebrate; however, our work continues to rebuild. Our children will soon return to school. Our businesses will all reopen. And all Fijians will work to restore our nation through sharing, compassion and understanding--just as Jesus Christ did.
I extend to all Fijians my deepest prayers for a very blessed Easter.
