An articled recalled
Bearing Colonial Germs
We as a society must face the truth, whether we are capable to change anything or not. Our main problem in all the areas of life is that we tend to behave like an ostrich and put our head beneath the sands
We have to seek and work for ways to develop moral courage at all levels. Our most common practice since a long time, is to build an imaginary world, make big castles in it, and to believe in unseen solutions that will come from nowhere.

Thank you Ma’m for sharing this post….
When people start to think for something good and noble, God starts to give it a shape…
Allah be with you. Aameen.
