How did we get out names?

I was sick once and ended up at the National Referral Hospital waiting in a queue to see the nurse.

The nurse asked the father for the name of the sick child...without even thinking the father replied ethnic tension. I was the next patient after that child.

So that is how that child got his name in rememberance of the worst ever part of Solomon Islands history after we had studied so many times that war does not help anybody.

Thank you.
