Darfur - So Close to Heaven

We can sleep all too well when we feel that we are in control of everything and anything that are dear and nearer to us. We pretend that we cant see and feel proud by doing what can be done provided it does not cross our comfort zone, and boy how we relish our underperformances! Someone once asked me " what is your range?" and I said "how much do u want it to be?" he said " so u can increase your imagination" and I said "Yes". ........................... that was the big pause he had taken just before his Last words "so why r u content. u could have also saved me." He died with a bullet hole while I was busy dressing for a party. And I was thinking to myself that - It was not under my jurisdiction. I had the power but I did nothing other than closing my eyes. I was content. I was wrong. What about You?

"People having natural powers to influence must bear a greater responsibility than any other"
-Quoted from ... I don't know, someone must have, someone somewhere always does
The Children of Darfur are calling you. Doesn't matter if u pretend not to listen. They r still there and they r still calling.

  1. I love this blog that you wrote. It's from the heart, factual and very well writen. It always makes me happy when I read blogs etc. where someone has taken extra time in their life to understand whats really going on instead of what they are told by the media, gov. etc.
    I only wish that Diplomatic leadership that are in support of the 3 P's (Protection, Punishment and Peacemaking) would do what they should to make a substantial difference. I could say time will tell but we are years past that.
