There are many in a romantic mood today. There are many too who are being loved and cared for. Today may be a very special day for many. To some of us, we expect a gift. However, for millions, it will be especially long and sad. No gifts. Alone. Unloved, uncared for, pinning for their loved ones and trying to get through today as best as they can possibly could.
Today is a day to remember the deprived ones – babies, infants and children, all over the world. Many are separated and left alone by wars, too many left dying with malnutrition and diseases…unattended to and searching for a chance to survive and to live. Many were just unlucky to be in parts of the world where, like it or not, wars, famine, drought, disasters and man-inflicted circumstances have dealt tragic blows to these children of our world’s future. Just imagine how tough living is for these individuals. Living hands-to-mouth every segment of each passing day.
Let’s take this day to do something for these babies, infants and children of all ages from various parts of the world. Let’s offer hope, love and care in whichever way possible. Those of us who are able to read this are in a tremendously fortunate situation. Take a moment to spare a thought and provide a helping hand. These gestures that would make our world a better and more meaningful one for our children and all who share this mother earth; giving a beam of ray of light in pitch darkness during every moment of their lives and struggles. All they need is a chance to begin to live.
“If it is to be, it is up to me”.
Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone. May there be abundant love all around.
