We are getting close to the end of the year.
This year, due to several terrorist incidents, many people have been left in trembling fear leaving them in deep sorrow and stricken to grief. We cannot avoid natural disasters but acts of terrorism involving the general citizens are an unforgivable act. Their ruthless acts have left us where we cannot help but pray for world peace. Preciousness of life is universal, no matter of the differences of country or race.
I pray from the bottom of my heart that remaining of 2015 will close peacefully.
