HAGÅTÑA — To be completely honest, I try very hard on a daily basis to shake my cynicisms, therefore I am constantly on the lookout for good, heart warming news. Alas, there is no such thing; one is hard-pressed to find a regular dose of warm and fuzzy at the moment.

THAT'S her local as well as her on-line nickname.  Liang-Rose.  She liked that nickname.  Liang-Rose, my wife.  Whenever she would send me an e-mail from California, it's Lian-Rose.  Her real name was Rosalia Tenorio Sablan. And even on Facebook, she would write to me, or to her friends, about her likes and dislikes.  It was still Liang-Rose.  She would write about her views on life as she experienced it.  She would write about our kids and the “grands” and how she loved them.  They were the joy and happiness in her life.  She would write to them and would ask them “how are they doing.”  Her visiting them is like visiting “Camelot.”  It was a joy seeing them.

The indigenous people of the Mariana Islands were significantly impacted by colonialism and globalization, the effects of which are still prevalent in today’s Mariana Islands society.

WE believe you. We are standing with you. We understand that recent news and the following reactions of the community have re-traumatized you. In the past few days, you have been questioned, judged, and silenced in ways that have been damaging to your healing and sense of self.

YOU can’t grow big thinking small, especially in today’s life on planet earth as life is truly competitive, as my MaDear once told me with her wisdom in a metaphorical way about living out here and being an activist on this island: “the big fish eat all the little fish so you Ambrose Milton Bennett better learn to grow big.”

GOVERNOR Ralph DLG Torres and Lt. Gov. Arnold I. Palacios are focused on the people of the Marianas, and this can be seen in the islands’ preventive measures against the spread of the  Covid-19 pandemic.

AS the CNMI House of Representatives has formed a special committee to take a closer look at the Governor’s financial expenditures, I could not help but look at the ascension possibilities if he is immediately removed from office.
