Something To Think About

September 25th, 2013

Last Saturday’s terrorist attack on innocent men, women and children in a Nairobi shopping mall claimed at least 67 lives, at last report. Tragic as that is, many many more will spend the rest of their lives trying to cope with the images of the carnage they survived.

Among the fatal victims were at least two Canadians, one of whom was Annemarie Desloges, 29 years old and an employee of Citizenship and Immigration Canada. I extend my condolences to her family members, dear friends and colleagues.

I, like most Canadians, take so much for granted and in particular the peaceful nation in which we live. It took this awful tragedy for me to really comprehend just how dangerous it can be to take part in the foreign service of Canadians. To all of you who do, I express my sincere gratitude.

    Certainly it is very bad happening every day in all parts of the world only to cry and sobbing is not enough. The irresponsible leaders of the world should take responsibility to restore peace and Justice to safe guard the humanity. For God sake ,be sure they are enemy of us all.

    While sympathizing with the victims families and loved ones for their loss, let us hope and pray Canada has tough controls and background checks on immigrants to ensure that its citizens will have a peace, love and care for each other. Over the last years I have seen the amount of migrants grow in a positive way for the country but have also witnessed road rage and arrogant attitudes built up. Let us all live in peace and let others live too. Amen (A to be migrant in the near future)

    There is so much wickedness and blatant demonstration of man’s disregard for human life. My only prayer is that humans will begin to tolerate one another and consistently demonstrate acts of love and understanding… otherwise the devil will continue to use us to achieve his evil desires.
