It is very warming to see your message. When we take time to think about
our fellow human beings and send them any help -- physical or non
physical -- it is bound to help however little it may be. When more of us
keep the welfare of our fellow human all over the world at the back of
our mind all the time, it will impact on our daily life.

You have made my day. It is 6.00 AM on Monday when I write this message.

    Peace to all living beings.
