since the news broke shed tears everyday at least twice à day - in the morning when I
read the newspaper and evening when I listen to the news. I have asked myself why this particular incident is so touching and causing so much grief especially so when
children are dying in the horn of Africa of hunger when food is being thrown in the bin everyday in other parts of the world including my home? When it all happened (
the Oslo incidents), everybody thought it
was the of terrorists (islamic extremists).
Assuming it was the work of islamic
terrorists would I have felt the same
anguish and grief? I do not know but
probably yes yet I can't let go the thought
that this was the work of one man killing
dozens of people irrespective of age,
religion or race because he deslikes people
like me. Like à local politician belonging to
the Sweddish racist party Swedish
Democrats put it, the actions of this felon
are due to multi-etnicity. But how does any
nation develop without diversity?
Another question I've pondered over the last few days is would the activities that have been carried out by this murderer which have been omgoing for the past 10 years gone unoticed by the law enforcement agencies if he had been muslim or of à foreign background? Has the western world become so biased and so prejudiced that only wrong doing has been categorised based on religion and or origin? Ironically, two days after the incident the headen of the editorial of one Sweden's dailys GP read;Terrorism or extremism? For obvious reasons I did not grasp the essence of the question. Would the same question have been asked if the act was committed by islamist group or an individual of à foreign background? I have no answers but in my world, causing harm and taking the lives of people in such à pre calculated manner and magnitude no matter religion or origin is nothing but à terrorist act.
My grief I believe is based on the fact that the perpertrator targeted à group of prople who are concerned about the welfare and development of society something I've spent the most part of My life doing. Co.-incidentally, i received by mistake an email which was not meant for me from someone who wants to start à war against muslims. Extremism whatever it's form in My world is unhealthy and the only way we can find peace and tolerans in this world is accepting diversity and tolerate what is foreign.
May th souls of the fallen victims rest in peace

We all once a while do want to feel needed and useful to others, especially those we love and cherish. Having a sense of usefullness creates satisfaction and inner fullfillment-joy; what I call the essence of life. But when do you know you are of good use to someone you love? Often a thank you or a sign of appreciation is considered enough. My issue is who determines when Ive been usefull? Is it when I feel a sense of satisfaction for what I have done or is it when someone confirms in positive terms what I have done? Are these two premises synonymous or complementary? Or does one carry more weight than the other? Or could it simply be that the latter is the determining factor of the earlier? Gee, Im neither a psychologist nor a philosopher but if a good sense of satisfaction is enough to create that innate joy should one suffer the consequence of the misinterpretation of whoever is at the receiving end? Maybe not but if not then what worth is that joy or sense of satisfaction if the recipient has a different perception of what is intended? Sharing same values is probaby the underlying factor for mutual understanding and the determining factor for feeling useful and to be apreciated.
Well, its almost midnight but before the day ends I want to feel Ive been useful bucause I feel a sense of satisfaction that Ive been useful and appreciated by someone else.

I've just booked and confirmed a trip to Ghana in mid december, hoping to be back home just in time to watch "Kalle Anka" on tv with my family on christmas eve. The purpose of the trip? To help out with the development of Great Andoh international school - the heart and soul of Emelie - my hero of late. I hope to overcome the frustrations associated with doing business in Ghana when it comes to people showing up at meetings in time if not on time. Already nervous about the endless hours I'm going to spend in traffic - all meetings will have to be scheduled between 10 am and 2 pm, the only time you can move from one end of Accra to the other under three hours in traffic.
I'm anxiously hoping to be able to help ease things for Emelie and great Andoh and to start a new milestone towards creating opportunities for needy and vulnerable children in Kasoa.
The opportunity of seeing my 86 year old mother again in less than 6 months is also an inspiration.
