– Margaret Atwood
I certainly hope so and I believe we can do it together; to be one human race. As we usher in 2010, I believe many of you have already made resolutions for the new year. Please allow me to suggest another if this is not one of your resolutions: Let us make peace with ourselves and eventually with the world.
We are different and yet we are also similar to each other. We are all sons or daughters to our parents, fathers or mothers to our children, uncles or aunts to our nieces and nephews, brothers or sisters to our siblings and friends to our friends. You and I, we are just souls being housed in different bodies.
When we focus on the differences, we see the differences in colour and culture. When we focus on the similarities, we can look beyond the physical layer into the beauty of the soul – the essence of life.
This is a journey with lot of challenges, but one which we do not travel alone. And together we can do it! Let us join our hands together to take on this journey of peace where our children understand and respect each other difference. And they treat each other with loving kindness and compassion. We can positively influence our children through our actions.
Wishing everyone a great 2010 with Love, Peace and Happiness!
