“For me and my family personally, September 11 was a reminder that life is fleeting, impermanent, and uncertain. Therefore, we must make use of every moment and nurture it with affection, tenderness, beauty, creativity, and laughter.”
– Deepak Chopra
“The reality is that you will grieve forever.
You will not ‘get over’ the loss of a loved one;
you will learn to live with it.
You will heal and you will rebuild yourself
around the loss you have suffered.
You will be whole again but you will never be the same.
Nor should you be the same nor would you want to.”
― Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
World Peace & Harmony
– Shyamli Suneesh
Peace is glory, peace is dignity,
peace is love and peace is amity.
Birds fly freely high up in the blue sky,
Flowers bloom and cherish when spring arrives.
Dews settle on leaves with deliberate happiness,
As bees buzz excited around their hives.
Why aren’t we as happy as they are?
So free, so elated
and no complaints at all.
Take the morning paper in your hand
and you’d find destruction all over land,
going around in evil bands
making peace and harmony banned.
War, conflict and destruction everywhere
arresting our accord even while asleep
Oh! God now is so very rare
And is peace today that hard to keep?
People are killed
every now and then.
Oh! Isn’t there anyone who’s skilled,
to place the eminent gem
of tranquility and unity.
I woke up today morning,
to enjoy Mother Breeze.
She says if we’d stop roaring
and take everything with ease,
we’d surely succeed in gaining world peace
As trees and flowers sway
and the wind runs over my face
It brings in a new ray of hope
that world peace can still return
“May the World Live in Peace and Harmony”
