Our respects to the People of Sri Lanka
On behalf of those involved with the VUCAP Project, we offer our sincere condolences to the people of Sri Lanka during these extremely difficult times.
We share friends and family who have been extremely fortunate to have not been harmed during the recent terror attacks, and for that we are truely grateful. One of the VUCAP team spoke of how his mother was within 1km of the first explosion and recounts how this is the fourth time that she has come so close to such horror. Her first experience of bombing civilian populations was in 1989.
One thing that we can be sure of is that the Sri Lankan people are resilient and embody the virtues of Mettha, Karuna, Upeksha and Muditha.
As respect to the Sri Lankan people in Sri Lanka, Perth and the diaspora, a reminder of the meaning behind each symbol of the flag, is a privilege to share.
