Oct 19 – 22 2011 – What I am Pessimistic About…

“To put the world in order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must put the family in order; to put the family in order, we must cultivate our personal life; and to cultivate our personal life, we must first set our hearts right.”

– Confucius-

And I fear that this will not come to be.  What can one expect from a nation that rejoices on a holiday announced to mourn the demise of a former first lady?  She was a woman first, lets not forget who lost a husband, and 3 of her 4 children and died virtually unaware of the people and situation around her.  But I digress…

Where is this country going or do I ask where we are allowing it to go?  Are we so powerless and ineffectual with all our education and so called awareness?  Will our children’s children know “Pakistan” or its history or its miracles or will they shy away from their identity as we have started doing and only be forced to defend themselves against calls of terrorism and corruption?  Kya hum kabhi dekhein ge…?
