We are all going to die one day

 It is evident that no matter how powerful, educated, experienced, talented, creative, wealthy, strong, weak, rich and poor we are all going to die one day. Yet, we use to forget to do good things when we are able to do and use to realize while there is little time left in our hand. Should we only wait for a retirement or an old age to be good to others, a God fearing person, the best motivator and a soft hearted creature? It must be good indeed, perhaps, that must be an answer to someone’s prayer or personal zeal however, futile in logical sense for people will research your history.

Everyone can contribute and amplify positivity in the society according to his/her capacity, abilities and ideas. The best time to work for His Glory, giving a helping hand to the needy, rendering service to the society is ‘NOW’ while we are young and physically and mentally capable.

At times, a sense of realization and timorous feelings occur when we hear a news of death, tragedy, when we attend a funeral service or vice versa.

We also take decision and make a resolution that I will remain a good person from now on, I will change, I will contribute something to the society. Nevertheless, we tend to forget as the time goes by and stick to abide with the same old habits; we fall in with the social evils and eventually become a victim.

In our society we see many ‘Yithio’ ( which means a man of words in Lotha) where He make only excuses and does not contribute anything to the society. Another one is ‘Phankalao’ (also in Lotha which means a person who follows others easily without reasoning) such individuals have no concern and vision for the society for He focus only for His personal benefit. We must make sure that we are not in this two category if we want to see a change in the society.

Keeping in mind, spreading of rumors, propaganda and circulation of fake news are the trend of this generation which hampers the peace, progress and development in the society. Let’s raise the wall against such social evils. Let us also pray for our leaders, encourage and appreciate them for their contributions, help the Church, cooperate the Government and act as an ambassador of peace. A small step of positive action today will impact good things tomorrow.

In conclusion, we must keep reminding to ourselves that our life is too short to live. Spread love, kindness, peace and forgiveness whilst enjoy, pray, celebrate, sing, laugh, dance and live our life like a ‘Heaven on Earth’.
