Orphans of nargis

Published by:

where will the orphans go?

usually they are sent to the monasteries
especially the boys
but now the monasteries are destroyed
where will the orphans go?
may be to the monasteries in bigger cities
the households take the kids 
especially the girls
but usually grow up like servants
as a worker of the household 
they have to earn their keep
not like their own family
emergency shelters shall be at government schools and hospitals
at monasteries and churches
orphanages can be at monasteries
or social ministries
till they can be adopted from a kind family

Trust needed for cyclone aids

Military or civil

Burmese are fine citizens
you can trust them
they will do their best to reach the victims
Unicef of UN is the most experienced in Burma
Staffed with many local experts
have long relationships with the ministries
I do not know about NGOs
some are very new
some have some experiences
Most of them at border areas
Some of them bible preachers
Many specialize in AIDs and condom promotions
Immediate need is food and shelter
later agricultural
To make sure they can redevelop their farms
I trust the government ministries
education, health and social
to rebuild their schools and hospitals
I trust the resilient Burmese
can over pass the difficulties
rebuild their societies with monasteries
where they can be there after rainy season
doing their goodwill and sharing
listen to dhamma lessons
giving merits for the departed souls lost in storm
regaining posture
regaining peace
regaining their purpose in life
May all free from blaming each other
having doubts
making goodwill turned into unpleasant poisonous thoughts

So What?

so what! another year under house arrest?

we just have to forget about democracy for a long while
listen and trust Mr Ban Ki Moon’s Asian wisdom
people need help , democracy? 
Sorry, no one is interested right now
Why must they suffer, starve and die for your Western Ideals
Do not forget to Analyze your Own Self!
Whether your heart is Sincere or Pure
Acting as if you are a Savior
Look down upon your Path 
Where you are heading with your Words and Acts
to Heaven or to HELL??
