my 2004 year's end commentary, I was humbled by a 'postmark'
from Fiji as someone in a far off island State of Fiji cares. A
perusal at postmarks of this year so far, still affirms the humanity
in most of the people out there.
Ah., we also had a friend from
Monaco. Really had to start revisiting my regional geography. The
only thing I know about Monaco are Formula 1, the art, music and film events
held in Monte Carlo, and of course football.
Fiji - I know, 'cause over a decade ago I had a friend from Fiji,
whose most memorable saga is the time we left him on a ferry from
Stockholm to Helsinki. The man got drunk and somehow got lost! And
we could not locate him. Any way, he turned up two days later.
Really wish I can remember his name.
Sorry, for the digression. The point is, the geographical vastness
of friends of Kasisi is a manifestation of our humanity and love for
the children. Attributes we should always cherish, uphold, and
share. Children are worthy our respect and dedication, for
they give meaning to our existence, but more so they give meaning to
Children are pure and innocent, and for me this affirms deism. That
is, theological rationalism that believes in God on the basis of
reason without reference to revelation. One may not need a
revelation of the works of God, if one takes time to look at the
works of children. Hate, anger in one minute, much love in the next.
Children share without boundaries, race or age. If it be that
children have so much love for humanity, why it be then that we do
not sometimes see their suffering?
Even if I ask this question, in my heart of hearts I am glad we have
worlds like Kasisi Children's Home and indeed the many friends of
Kasisi from all over the world. Again, I thank you all for allowing
me to be part of your world.
let us always remember that "we do good not to be recognised, but
because it is good to do good."
Love and bye for now.
