Good afternoon, Mr. Best and the Daily Observer family.
Just to say today’s editorial of the paper has got me elated and inspired, and my spirit lifted. I truly feel a part of an institution that opened my eyes to the journalism profession. I am touched by the historical accounts and comparative analysis as outlined in the piece.
I have always made it a point to mention how without my acceptance at the Daily Observer in March 1987, I probably would not have gone on to become a known and respected figure in society; I would probably have ended up doing something or nothing else.
God knows why Mr. Best decided to give me a try. And I am glad I have not been a disappointment to him, the institution and this noble profession. Take the glory, KYB.
Of course, I do consider returning home as I continue a struggle to, in a peaceful, respectful but persistent way, seek a simple explanation from Mr. President to his rather damaging allegations that have only put my life at risk with some of his by-all-means supporters.
But I am of the conviction that tough times don’t last, tough people do.
Thanks very kindly for this insightful editorial. I feel truly honored.
