Great Sri Lankan Patriots - A Call for Unity

By Priyantha Hettige

No-where do I see praise for the hardworking man in the streets, shops and businesses of Sri Lanka.

We have endured years of turmoil and war. Now all patriots expect a "Peace Dividend." This should happen but does not. The people of Sri Lanka are the finest of anywhere in the world and deserve better treatment: the rewards of Cause and Effect belong to us. We, the people deserve the best that democracy can provide.

We must rebuild Sri Lanka to be a leading destination in the world, we must regain our land as a sanctuary of peace, progress and creativity.

The good work of our men, our brave patriots in the Navy, Air force and Army goes unrecognized. They protect our shores and keep us safe. If drug imports could be reduced or eliminated, the economy would benefit by Billions of Rupees. That would be a lot of money in the coffers of the exchequer!

Our noble men and women serving in our Police force, battle day and night against criminal gangs and keep them in check - keeping our towns and roads safe. We thank them.

We recognise them and we honor them for their good work.

We have incredible wealth in natural resources and manpower - there is no reason at all for anyone to be poor and go to bed hungry in our beautiful country.

Our students are highly intelligent and deserve the best in education. We must help and guide them in every way possible to develop and grow in maturity, wisdom and excellence. We can and Must do it!

Educationalists can deliver, and all students can benefit, especially our university graduates; they are highly intelligent and can handle any challenge put their way. We believe in them - and they can do it!

We must encourage all the hard-working patriots of our great nation, and help them to lead happy and fruitful lives in this paradise island of Sri Lanka.

The way forward is clear - Drive out the bad and bring in the good!

May the Word of the Buddha and his Teachings bring peace, happiness and prosperity to all living on this treasured island in the sun!
