Thanks Eleanor Maineke for this wonderful Bougainville story.

You have the power of your words so tell more Bougainville stories to the world that is eagerly awaiting more Bougainvillean voices.

Bougainville is at the critical point in its political journey towards deciding its future as dictated by the peace agreement and I feel our stories will help out.

Welcome to PNG Attitude.

Thank you, Eleanor. The fact that you were brought up during the war, yet can write so beautifully about it, says a lot.

I love the story about the time the statue got a bullet through the heart and a cloudy fog came between the warring sides. God moves in a mysterious way.

I know your faith in Mary, the mother of Jesus, is very great and it is interesting that it took an "act of God", an earthquake, to leave only the foot of her statue standing.

"Writing to heal" is a very good way of helping yourself understand yourself and we say, "getting it off your chest". Once you start to explain to yourself what is troubling you, then you often find a way to solve your problems.

I guess it is a bit like prayer. When you start praying to God about a problem often He slowly supplies the answers, in your pray.
