I was reading this fascinating piece about the Moon Landing by Groundviews and the messages of good will carried on that mission
I've spent the last 30mts reading those letters even from countries such as Sierra Leone, Upper Volta, Togo and Afghanistan.
Sadly Sri Lanka is missing from this list and in a fashion seems to be a reflection upon us and our tendency to isolate ourselves from global participation.
Why is that? Is it that we carry a chip on our shoulders in spite of all that we have achieved? I can understand it if missed the dead line - but to decline it?
