Very eloquent young man from Mannar, Elikah Hoole, speaking as a member of Sri Lanka Unites. I basically agree with everything he says and wish I could say it half as well myself. He calls himself Sri Lankan, but calls for a journey towards that identity. He calls for justice, but from the people of Sri Lanka, not from foreign investigations. He calls for a solution to our problems, not from politicians or the international community, but from the people.
I think the best thing anyone can do for Sri Lanka is not to punish or condemn the place or the government but support our people, especially our young people, as much as possible. To quote Sugathadasa de Silva, bus conductor 154 route, Dematagoda – “Change can not be given to you every time. You must bring the change”
This young man, I think, is quite lucid and quite real. People should listen.
