'tis a season for well wishes

Is the world becoming a better place to live in with each passing year? The answer is a definite no! What with the butchering of innocent people in Gaza, the unending sufferings of the people in Somalia, Sudan, DRC, Zimbabwe and other countries throughout the world. Should we lose hope and give everything up? The answer is a resounding no once again. At a personal level some people have lost their loved ones or have had some sort of personal tragedy. There is no reason for these people to give up.

It is with this in mind that I wish you all a happy and fruitful new year. Despite all the trials and tribulations we have had to undergo, we always need to have a positive outlook in what we do and what life throws at us. Let us in this new year strife to be better people than we were in the previous one. Help someone closer to you who needs a little push.

A lot around us is changing and we need to understand what this change means. We need to influence this change for the better. To all those who have had a successful 2008, strive for more success in this new year and those who view 2008 as a failure, there is no reason to be pessimistic, all odds can be overcome.

And lets all be the change that we want to see in the world as Mahatma Gandhi would say.


  1. Well said Gab and I totally agree with you that we need to be on a look out for opportunities and strive to help those who might be struggling. I guess the challenge is to identify where to invest their precious resource "Time"in projects that add value to one's progress in 2009.
