Terrific effort - the stuff of legends!

Thank you Rashmii, Keith, Phil, and others who pulled this off.

Many thanks Rashmii and Keith,

Yet another book to add to my library which you share with Steinbeck, Hemingway, Dos Passos, Sillitoe, Gelhorn,
Goldman, Hardy and many more.
It was a splendid evening.

Nothing is impossible when we put our hearts and minds to achieve what we want despite challenges and obstacles. Rashmii is an inspiration!

Thank you McKinnon-Paga Hill Fellowship Scheme, Australian High Commission, organisations, generous individuals and of course Keith and Phil for the success of this book My Walk to Equality which places a firm forward footprint for PNG women to follow.

If it wasn't for the McKinnon-Paga Hill Fellowship Scheme, this book would not be possible, the Simbu-Noosa Shire Wantok Project would not be possible, the places Francis Nii, Martyn Namorong, my wife Julie and myself saw, the friendships we forged would not have been possible.

When like-minded people interact, things happen.

What a profound and wise statement from one of the elders and true gentlemen of PNG literature - KJ

Sensational achievement. Game-changing, we hope. I can and do endorse Rob Parer's acclamation.

A masterful speech Keith, giving the story of the long years hard yakka with many ups & lots of downs culminating in Rashmii Amoah Bell's wonderful anthology "My Walk to Equality" which was launched last night.

And congratulations to the MC, Murray Bladwell, on putting it all together right down to name tags!

And the lady at the centre of the book launch - the delightful Rashmii Amoah Bell - did herself proud in her speech.

I could not believe that six of the writers in the Anthology were present & each one wrote a few words in the front page of my book. This book is a milestone for really big things to follow. That front page will be worth big bucks one day. Thank you one and all.
