No it’s not my birthday today but it is for my country, Papua New Guinea.
Today is Independence day. I know there where many celebrations back at home and of course on this day I wish I were at home to join in on the celebrations.
But I’m not so today I just thought of home, how far we’ve come and how much more we need to do to move forward.
Happy Independence Papua New Guinea.
I wanted to share this song. It’s in my language (well one of the 850 languages that we have). Oshen is the artist and “Mi Laik Kam” translated means “I want to come”.
You may not understand it but here’s just what the chorus says:
I see the ships sailing away and the airplanes flying above.
Rain fall on me while the sun shines on you.
I want to come, but it's too difficult; the mountains are too high and the ocean blocks my path.
