To my sister Moon,

Ou te le tau fa'atulou, tau fa'amalie, pe tau fa'ato'ese atu i loto ma agaga ua mafatia, ona o ni uiga le taupulea ma le le alofa ua faia e ni isi o lo'u aiga, aua e leai sa'u fe'au ma sa'u pule. Na'o le fa'anoanoa o le loto i le faitau atu i amioga fa'atufanua fa'apenei, ua ta'uvalea ai le igoa o le aiga ma nai o matou tuaa. Ua le tasi pe fa'alua, ni tala fa'apenei ua faitau iai, ma ua iloa, malamalama ma fa'amaonia fo'i e le lautele o le atunu'u.

To be perfectly clear, I will not condone nor defend such individual behaviors. Whatever the verdict, I feel that justice will be served, if not well deserved. E miliona a'a o le tagata! Blood is also thicker than water! This is the family bond that's hard for me to walk away from and ignore. I'm sure you're all familiar with the old saying: "Uo i aso uma a'o uso mo aso vale."

Fofo, Sivia, Tau'ese, Aito, Vaoita, Mine, Galuane, Tia and Fou were and are still brothers and sisters to me. We grew up together in Fagatogo under my late uncle, Rev. Elder Fiti Sunia's umbrella. I can never try to justify the ills that some of my siblings have committed, but I refuse to accept nor believe that my uncle's good name 'SUNIA' is the root of all these ill behaviors.

I also feel bad for my nieces and nephews and the family as a whole. We cannot defend the indefensible, but we will accept and live with the shame for the rest of our lives.

My hope and prayer not only for Mine but also for each of us is to be truly repentant for the crimes and sins we have committed. Just as important, is not to lose a friend along these bumpy roads.

Totally agreed; "What a damn shame."

E muamua Ona faatalofa atu aua fo'i faasausauga ua feagai ai i lenei afiafi, o outou paia ole a le o'o ai se upu a AIKALAFU-LE-KOKOGIA aua ose i'a e ivi'ivia. Ma oute talitonu, ua malamalama samoa, o paia ia ua mo'omia e le atunuu e ula ai tatou ma a tatou fanau.
Ole natura faa-le-tagata, e paia ai lava si ona mata, naunau ile oa faa-lelalolagi ae galo ai le ma'si'asi.
Its gratifying to see/hear u apologizing for family members uso, but we cannot push blame on someone who has no part in such crimes of other memebers of ones family. As u stated, justice will be put on those who are responsible. All we can do is pray for them, weakness comes in different forms, its up to us as "individuals" to distinguish how to love thy enemy as well and not cast blame. It is not for us to judge for we be judged accordingly. Eu muamua le laau o loo paia ai lou mata. Happy Thanksgiving to all of u who celebrate here in the United States, and for those around the world, Have a great evening and God Bless.

DEAR BROTHER SURF...

Please accept my apologies if I have offended you..deeply..and if any of the Sunia family members express any anger towards my post...I wouldn't blame them for defending their loved one(s). It is the natural and human thing to do....and I know, that if anything like this happened with a family member...I too would be trying to defend their or the family's honor.

Yes,nobody on this earth is perfect...
I truly and sincerely apologize for mentioning the parents as...it is true...they have no part at all in all of this.

It is just that I was so shocked...angered,confused,fel t embarassed, saddened...then totally disappointed...upset so..so very disappointed..SURF, because...I know them to all be highly intelligent...individuals, looked up to them as great role models destined to a calling to serve our people.
Please accept my apologies.

A-L-K,

Fa'afetai atu ia te 'oe le uso i ou mafaufauga ma manatu ua fa'asoa mai. E logona fo'i le mafanafana o le loto ona o fautuaga malie ma le manaia, ae maise fo'i le fa'atasi mai o lona Agaga Paia, ina ia fa'ato'a filemu ai agaga ma loto o fanau a le atunu'u fa'apea i tatou uma ua mafatia. E ui ina lagona le masiasi ona ua ta'uvalea ai le igoa ma ni isi o aiga, ae ou te talitonu fo'i o Samoa ma ona tagata e tumu i le loto fa'amagalo.

I'm sure God's plan is for us to be wise, healthy and wealthy. But for reasons beyond comprehension, the love for money never fails to bring out our human weaknesses, even to the point of committing such shameful acts, and not caring about the consequences. Loyalty for family is misunderstood if not lost; for "there is no honor among thieves!"

Afai fo'i ua sala se upu, manatu ma le gagana, lafo ane ia i fogava'a tele ina ia magalo ai ma'ua ma si o'u tuafafine ia Mine. Manuia la'asaga o le vaiaso o lo'o totoe, ma le sauni atu mo le Aso Fa'afetai.

Talofa e i si o'u tei, Moon, I truly believe it's not proper for you to apologize to me especially. Knowing you and the numerous posts we have all shared in the past, we are all outspoken (especially our circle of friends) and free to speak our minds and express our feelings. Even to the point of stepping on each other's toes and offending each other to no limit. That's the beauty of true friends to me. However, if it makes you feel any better, I will accept your apology...

Moon, the anger and embarrassment of reading such news about family members is never easy to digest. Believe me, your anger and disappointments are fully justified. However, I do value your friendship also, so let bygones be bygones! Whether I agree or disagree with your stated opinions, it definitely won't stop me from popping in and give you not only a big shout, but also hugs and kisses.

Happy Thanksgiving sis...
