ONLY IN SAMOA :  Poster promoting the holiday cheer while a young vendor tries to smile from behind a measles protection face mask, is probably the best way to sum up where we are right now.

Question is how much holiday cheer do we have left in the tank with the tragedy of the epidemic’s continuing death toll and new measles cases added every 24 four hour cycle?

Miss Samoa has brought us much needed cheer with the Miss Pacific win at the start of the week.

  But instead of basking in the glamour of deserved celebrity, she has donned her nursing working cap and is right there in the middle of the raging battle against the measles virus.

Follow her lead. There is no greater reward than the fruits of your own faith in your self and the good that you can do for others you loved.

Never lose the good cheer in your heart.

Baby Jesus is on His way.  He brings with Him the love of our 50 plus angels, slain by the measles sword, to sooth our broken hearts and replace it with the cheers of the Holy Birth.

Keep the faith.
