One response to “Pagan In The Media

  1. Nathan Manibusan

    Why would you want to destroy this beautiful island? I don’t understand.
    You guys believe that Pagan is a deserted island, and that is entirely false. If you can open your eyes you will see that there are different types of life live there. This war that is happening and have been happening is nonsense. I truly believe that. Take a step back and think where you came from, where your ancestors came from. I know that it is human instinct to survive, heck that’s in all the animal kingdom, but what separates us from animals, is that we can think and rationalize the things we do.
    I ask that you stop what you’re doing right now and think to yourself and also think that Pagan is a island that life just started.
