Dear Editor,

Hemi really mekem yu wan better person? Yu wan lawyer, wan banker, wan professor, wan qualified professional mo from hemia then yu wan better person than the next man or woman.

Be ating olketa we oli stap oli better off from oli kat time blong start early long development. Planem sandalwood.
