A Solemn Christmas Carol

Christmas we celebrate with peers
Calamity they suffer with tears
Lingering carol we sing
But what they hear is the malady of the dying

May Christmas spirit voyages through all lands
For us to lend our hands
So it can be strengthen
That we all are brethren

No matter how big the tides
God bless you all my friends

    A Democracy Can Overcome Extremism

    The closing of houses of worship, assault on an orphanage and stabbing of a religious leader all happened in front of our eyes and under full media coverage. We cannot say that we did not see this coming. As a democratic society, the blame rests with us. The government that has done little to prevent such acts — even possibly provoking hostility toward a certain group in some instances — is, like it or not, a democratically elected one.
