"All of us have the right to choose whether to be happy or not. Being happy is an easy thing; all we have to do is to forget. But before we do that, we will have to learn three things: to accept it, face it and overcome it. Only when you have fully learnt this, you will be able forget."

I guess some of us just don't like the feeling of facing up to our problems. We just run and hide, but this is not going to help. I got this inspiration not too long ago when I decided to accept my fate and it really does help. We should learn to heal.

IF I HAD THE POWER

If I had the power
I would heal the sick,
Feed the hungry and the poor
End all poverty, famine and war.

If I had the power
All the blind would see, the lame would walk,
The mute and deaf would hear and talk.

If I had the power
No child would ever shed a salty bitter tear,
Out of neglect, beating or fear
For I would give them a family
That truly loves them and cares.

If I had the power
But yes, we all possess that power.
It's called "the power of prayer".
