Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all our readers. This is the season to be jolly, as the song goes, and we are hopeful that our readers (and everyone else out there) are jolly and in a celebratory mood. Not withstanding the fact that this time of the year comes along with it’s own wide range challenges; from those are facing financial struggles, to those separated from their families, to those who lost their loved ones, to those facing homelessness, broken hearts and hopelessness.

It is my heartfelt prayer that we all seek and find even the smallest joy during this period and allow ourselves to be jolly despite whatever challenge we may be facing. Near the end of 2016 the challenges across the world have only worsened, wars continue to rage on, political turmoil across various countries appears to have no end in sight. The rich continues to get richer while the poor gets poorer.

Whatever religion is yours, whatever you may call God, pray for a better tomorrow, pray for the lost, pray for the alone. Pray that they receive hope and reassurance that someday the joys they once experience will be restored again. Pray fro those who have never experienced joy that someday the find out what it means to be happy.

Those languishing in prisons all over the world; guilty or not guilty, they deserve pure hearts, to be treated with kindness, to be allowed the opportunities to reintegrate into society  and resume their lives. Soldiers that are sent by their countries to fight wars on foreign lands, soldiers sent by the United Nations on peace keeping missions.

The police who tasked with maintaining order, the paramedics who are responding to all sorts of incidents, accidents and scenes of carnage, the nurses who are working long shifts, the doctors, the retail industry that works through out the year and all the other industries that do not break.

This is the season to be jolly and the season to think of your fellow men. The season reflect upon the decisions that brought us this far and how we could improve going forward. Introspection may yield better results going forward; we may learn how we could improve our relationships with others and how we may contribute positively to society. For it is not for governments to build livable societies but for the citizens.

Merry Christmas to our readers; on behalf of Incwajana, Amawa Group and myself: I would like to say thank you for your support, it means a lot more than you will ever know to us. We don’t get to say thank you everyday and we wish we could and hopefully we will do it more often in the future. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.
