Who am I?

I am no one special.
I am an ordinary person born in 1951 to ordinary people in a country who provided good welfare to it citizens.  I was loved by my parents.  Their income was not good enough for us to go on vacation once a year but it was good enough for gifts under the Xmas tree every year and for every birthday.  I cannot complain.

At the age of 15, I dreamed of a peaceful world, not because my country was at war, but because others were.  By 19 I was already a registered nurse and working.  By 21, I left the world I had known and the people I loved, behind, and entered the new and uncharted waters of spiritual war.

2011 will see my 39th spiritual birthday, my 32nd wedding anniversary, and the 21st anniversary of my motherhood.

I am no one special. I do not comprehend politics very well, and do not understand economists.  I do not resent people who make a lot of money but resent calls for voluntarism when I perceived so much selfishness and shortsightedness of the leaders of our societies.

I believe that ignorance breed fear, and fear breed war.  Ignorance does not affect only uneducated individuals.  Ignorance is a disease that affects all of us.  We judge and make decisions from what we know and forget that we know very little.
