We Are ALL Tongan
AUGUST 17, 2009
The idyllic island kingdom of Tonga. My friend Elizabeth is from the South Pacific Island Kingdom of Tonga, an exotic locale long fixed in my memory with images of Polynesian paradise. Tonga has sadly been in the news lately after an inter-island ferry sank on August 5 drowning over 70 people. But surprisingly, a subject Elizabeth didn’t know a lot about is Tonga’s frontline role as a victim of the climate change crisis.
