A picture of courage

THE front page article of the young and courageous students crossing the Wainimala river is breathtaking.
Not your typical route to school ... students of Nasauvere Primary School tread one of the many rivers to get to school in the Naitasiri highlands. Picture: JOVESA NAISUA

The students holding hands and most certainly barefooted had one common thing and that was the bula smiles on their faces when the photo was taken.

You will only find this in Fiji.

Again under no supervision these brave young students remind me of the rocky path they are taking daily under dangerous situations not only in the morning but in the afternoon.

They are already shaping up their lives to face challenges at such a young age.

It was also a great photo to show team building at its best.

Who knows one of them will become a leader one day and relate this daily struggle in his or her story - great motivation for all of us.
