Every year all over the world people from all walks of life celebrate to usher in the New Year.
It is a time to remember that mankind has a chance to have a 'New' beginning.
It is a time of Thanksgiving to God for a beautiful year with better prospects in the subsequent years.
It is a non-negotiable period to rekindle the simple warmth of family, community and friendship.
It is most of all a period to appreciate the virtue of humility for being one of a number that lived to see the dawn of the New Day in a New Year

May we all be blessed in 2006 with food, shelter, health, happiness, friends and family.

May every child be cherished, recognized for their unique gifts.

"Each second we live is a new and unique moment of the universe, a moment that will never be again. And what do we teach our children? We teach them that two and two make four, and that Paris is the capital of France. When will we also teach them what they are? We should say to each of them: Do you know what you are? You are a marvel. You are unique. In all the years that have passed, there has never been another child like you. Your legs, your arms, your clever fingers, the way you move. You may become a Shakespeare, a Michelangelo, a Beethoven. You have the capacity for anything. Yes, you are a marvel. And when you grow up, can you then harm another who is, like you, a marvel? You must work, we must all work, to make the world worthy of its children." ~ Pablo Picasso
