From our Moms to Yours.

Hard times will pass
As they always do

With patience and strength
You’ll bravely sail through

Soon you will pass the rough times
‘Defeat’ is a word Moms never knew.

Being well aware of all your pain
We share our sincere feelings with you.

Ilmana Fasih
A Mom.

On Being Busy…..

If you were busy being sincere n dutiful
Life would be nothing but beautiful
You would soon learn the life’s treasure
Is in sharing others sadness n your pleasure

If you were busy being kind n good
You did the job to the best you could
You would not have time or mind to blame
All the rudeness that on your way came

If you were busy being cheerful n clappy
Trying to lift those who weren’t so happy
Even if your heart and mind did ache
You will forget your worries for other’s sake.

If you were busy being honest n true
You wouldnt worry what you ought to do
As the skeletons in the cupboard are exposed
When lies get bare and one’s credibility is deposed.

If you were busy being sulky n whiny
And blamed others for all-large or tiny
Soon all your blessings will bid you adieu
That this life had bestowed upon you

If you were busy being unkind n mean
And just imagined in people negatives unseen
You would soon cease to have a human heart
And all your friends n wellwishers too will part.

Words of Wisdom

“In my own view, the important achievement of Apollo was a demonstration that humanity is not forever chained to this planet, and our visions go rather further than that, and our opportunities are unlimited.”
~Neil Armstrong, 1999

“Since, in the long run, every planetary civilization will be endangered by impacts from space, every surviving civilization is obliged to become spacefaring–not because of exploratory or romantic zeal, but for the most practical reason imaginable: staying alive… If our long-term survival is at stake, we have a basic responsibility to our species to venture to other worlds.”
~Carl Sagan, Pale Blue Dot, 1994

“I don’t think the human race will survive the next thousand years, unless we spread into space. There are too many accidents that can befall life on a single planet. But I’m an optimist. We will reach out to the stars.”
~Stephen Hawking, interview with Daily Telegraph, 2001
