The year 2012 is about to end in just a couple of days with the last month being a festive time not just of the yuletide season but December is also a month wedding bands and vows and babies. Of a big coincidence, I myself know 3 sets of couples who got married just this month and 3 new mothers who also gave birth to healthy babies a few days apart from each other. But aside from these happy events, some sad and disastrous incidences have also occurred elsewhere in the world like typhoons and floods turning over entire communities and livelihoods to gun shooting massacres in the US. Such sad events that would bring a much needed lesson to humanity in more ways than one.
And with the start of the 2013 Year of the Water Snake, we always hope for a better and brighter future ahead of us. Not just for our own country, but also for the whole world. May there be less disasters and violence and more love and peace.
