NAAPAC Leadership Summit Speech!

A very good evening to all of you.

It is with grateful of good citizenship and personal privilege for me to be here today among all the distinguished community leaders. No impersonal representation of a culture or ethnicity can fully communicate its reality to others who have never known its living substance. Through personal relations – our curiosity can be fulfilled by a sense of knowledge; cynicism can give way to trust, and the warmth of human friendship to be kindled. Read the rest of this entry »
