well, your topic generalizes all Micronesian (FSMers) so let's dig for some truth to such claim. You and I both know that no one can take bath in salty water withour rinsing off with some fresh water. In other words, your claim that Chuuk is surrounded with water is absurd.
Now, go to all FSM States and pay close attention to cleanliness. Generally speaking Chuuk is far a mile the most dirtiest. Don't you agree?
sounds like you are a very intelligent individual. Any solutions to the dilemma?
Thank you Yakumo for showing us the mirrior about our FSM. You spoke the truth and therefore right away brought about response in defense of our FSM. The truth always hurts but we, the FSM citizen must take what you said about us and endeavor to make it better.
From my own observation, I know from experiences that State of Yap is the cleanest among the FSM states.
Mandaray hotel and Yap divers are wrold class, ocean is super clear and Islands is litter free.. The best to visit among FSM states.
But we stand out with our uniqueness of culture to behavior! The respect found here on the islands cannot be found anywhere that I can think of. Imagine killing a person either intentionally or by accident, apologizing can keep you out of the legal actions, if this was America, your a ’hole would be in jail! I am not saying it’s right that we apologize and not go to jail cuz sometimes its not! Like those that rape they should be in jail until the Day Jesus will come, if ever! <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
So all in all,, yes FSM has bads/goods but it is not fair to say that we are disgusting and filthy cuz we are trying!
Yakumo my friend. If you are that concern and from one FSM states, please help us clean up our mess. In fact, you have done the first part of your contribution in the wake of cleaning out the rubbish by boldy saying it out loud in this forum. Now, you know that it will take more than one or thousands to fix this problem but it must take the entire population of the nation to start working toward this goal of "Word Clean Up Day" by adapting the thought into their daily activities and only then we can all see and achieved what you and I would like to see. Right? This means the man behind the laws of protecting violators from breaking them to ensure cleanliness we all wan to see, must not should but do their job and make sure that violators are brouht to justice and dealt with accordingly if they chose to continue to and willfully breaking these laws. I also believe that awarness education must be strengthened to ensure that people are fully and informed well in advance priort to imposement of the laws and regualtions of the maintenance of the beauty of our islands.
This is my half cent to this post. Cheers!
