Another Day in Paradise - Tahiti
You found us! We're not sure how long we'll be up but you can always go to PacificNetwork.tv to find our video stories and Life is Good because just how much bad news can we handle these days. Our thoughts go out to families who suffer losses from the mining accident, the disaster in Haiti, the recent quakes felt all along the Pacific's Ring of Fire, to families separated from loved ones stationed in the Middle East, to colleagues affected by local mergers and sale of media companies, and to many Americans struggling through the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression.
We don't discount the hard harsh reality of what's going on in the world and in our backyards because all of us have a role in making this a better place and a better world. I think of my grandmother who always reminded me to "look for the silver lining" and that was very good advice. So I turn you toward French Polynesia...and a big mahalo to our Pacific Network - Tahiti studio where Johann Bouit and crew continue to document what's happening in the Pacific and in the Isles de la Societe including the Marquesas, birthplace of people who sailed north in hand hewn canoes sometime very long ago to inhabit the Hawaiian Islands.
This clip is a glimpse of life in Mo'orea one of the 130 islands located a short boat trip away from Tahiti. They may not have all the choices we've got in the U.S. but I think they've got something else.
