From the heart warming to the heart wrenching! The year of 2007 will be well defined by all these. Just like a wheel, it has rise and fall. There's no exception for year 2007. From my lens, last year was filled with too many tragedies. Too much for comfort so to speak. How I wish all these could had been stop. But, bygones are bygones.

Last year, front page of papers are splashed with faces of those innocent people murdered (especially little girls). Aren't we supposed to protect these helpless child? Instead we let them down. Accidents happened here and there from plane crashes to road deaths. The church shooting and university massacre that happened was a alarming wake up call for us. What had happened to our world? Is the "controller" finally breached its threshold? Where are those angels that are always there to protect us? In the end fairy tales are just fairy tales i guess (at least most of the time). Where is the love?

To be fair, I know a lot of people are doing their best to stop all those bad thread from weaving into a big dark cloth that will blanket us. But these unsung heroes are human too...they need all of us to stand up. To fight with them!

How often has this world came back to us in 2007, often at the right moment between periods of turmoil when we pondered what was going wrong with our world. Far beyond the tension and in the world political maze, to the spate of horrible crimes that shocked us, love always prevails to let us rise!

Brothers and sisters, 2008 is a new year which brings a lot of new hopes. To make this world a better place for me and you, we will needs more than kneeling and prayers. It's not easy but it can be done and MUST be done. And no one said it's going to be easy. But...all it takes is a simple courtesy from all of us. Be just a little bit more polite, considerate and understanding than you usually are. Make it a habit to improve ourselves every day. I know it may sound rather incredulous but you'll see the magic sooner or later. So let us rise and make this world a better place for our children and loves on for they deserve to have a life.

Wake up everyone...didn't you hear year 2008 year-ning for more love? It's time to start giving.

Amen to that.... let 2008 be a better year for all of us, which I believe it will be since we are heading to a multipolar world.
