Family-Global and mine

A colleague sent this email at work and i thought it was nice to share:

If you have a moment--this is very touching and shows how linked we all are in this global family...

The director of a wonderful organization formed by American adoptive parents to introduce early childhood, infant nurture, nanny and foster programs for children in orphanages in China, Half the Sky Foundation, just sent an email which contained the following comments....
"The children, from Hainan and also from other institutions (orphanages with Half the Sky programs) across China, have been sending drawings and cards to our Beijing office, all of them bearing good wishes for hurricane survivors on the Gulf Coast. They are delightful! We'll definitely be including some of them in our next newsletter.

One wonderful side benefit of our programs is that the children have begun to look out beyond their own small world--just as you have, in some cases, looked across oceans to help them. We truly are a global family!"

On a totally different note, significant other's parents are landing from India tonight.

Nice to know about that. I came across today in rediff about Sri Sri RaviShankar visiting Katrina victims. The news on the hurricanes reaches all parts on this global village soo soon.. Honestly, when I was in India I never heard of the hurricanes in US. Now, all my family back there knows the name of the hurricane, the damage, etc. and keep enquiring me about it. Tough time saying convincing that I am safe.

I am happy to note that the world is shrinking and crossing all borders for a common cause for sharing of sorrow and grief & the concern these young show on the world affairs.

raju: thanks for the info on Sri Sri's visit to Katrina victims. I am sure that people all over now are much more aware of global happenings than ever before.

katpadi_murali: yes, these days, it is amazing what the younger generation can do with their time and concern.

It does not matter whether we get together to celebrate, but the fact that the whole world comes together in times of crisis is good - Tsunami & the recent hurricanes are good examples
