» And offer ourselves in challenging services


Strike the shepherd...





The address of Obama on Osama is news indeed. Good for some not so good for others. The determination to top list the charged in order to prove his commitment to the victims of 9/11 and the rest of the Americans is praiseworthy. Barring all divisive factors standing as One nation and One people is the beauty and joy of  2/5/11.

There is rejoicing, pain renewed to those who suffered loss yet the no ordinary achievement brings a sigh of relief to the entire world.

May we the ordinary citizens unite in this wishful prayer:


                                                   -May leaders be charged with courage and commitment
                                                            Warriors with perseverance and daring
                                                                    and the people with goodwill and gratitude.
                                                                           May I and mine be minimized
                                                                                  We and ours get zoomed.
                                                                                            May this be our safeguard for the future.
                                                                                                   Good Shepherd, lead us onward.
