Imagine that…

with 4 comments

Imagine …starting a website for Marshallese, and not knowing if you had enough material to post for a few weeks, let alone seven years…

Imagine…Marshallese, living outside of the Marshall Islands, being limited on contacting those back home. That’s how it was back then.

Imagine…knowing of only four or five Marshallese with access to the internet and trying to start a virtual community. That’s how it was back then.

Imagine…within several months, passed by word of mouth only, and with great desire to communicate, Marshallese from Guam to the US East Coast finding the website, and gathering nightly to chat and post messages for loved ones.

Imagine…searching the internet and finding hardly any news coming out from the Marshall Islands and very little information. That’s how it was back then.

Imagine…Marshall Islanders and friends having no place online to freely express their opinions and suggestions. That’s how it was back then.

Imagine…life without Yokwe Online. No, folks, this isn’t the end of that website or its purpose. But…

Imagine…something new in 2005. A Yokwe blog. My personal blog.

Imagine…all that I’ve been wanting to say, and more…

Imagine that!
