I am so appreciative of the expressions of care and concern from this virtual community about my mother’s death. It means a lot. Not just because of the comfort your words provide in dealing with the loss but because it is a reminder that national and ethnic differences take a back seat when the question of humanity is at stake. Gives me hope that a truly global community can come together committed to protecting the rights of individuals to enjoy life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. While the big media tech companies desperately try to control what happens in this electronic world, they cannot quash it.
Current world events give any sane person multiple reasons to be depressed–e.g., the real threat of nuclear war, looming famine, soaring inflation, widespread government corruption and a media dedicated to prevarication. But hearing from people in New Zealand, Nigeria, France, United Kingdom and Russia, just to mention a few on this blog, brings true joy. The commentary reflects profound humanity and intelligence. I thank you for taking the time to comment here.
