or do not be afraid. we all know that fear is something that paralyzes a person from doing he wants to do in life. Now with all the problems and financial crisis worldwide there seems to be lots of reason to fear or be afraid of the future. BUt of course, we can still not be afraid and find hope. we should i think look back on the teachings of our parents when we were young. and remember those things that they have taught us before. when i am afraid i just look up and think that there is always up there who sees me and knows what is best for me. all the while i am trying to protect myself which is just okay, but i must know that there is someone one up there who is protecting me from those things that i don't know or see in life. So i guess we have to haev some anchor on our faith to survive these difficult times. how about you. where do you take courage from to survive the onslaught of problems that we are having now in our modern world. this time that we are in are life of extremes. it is like we either live in a very pleasurable life or end up in a very difficult kind of lifestyle.

I am the only child in the family and my greatest fear is 'What if my parents have to go to internal life' what will happen to me. I am alone and no other siblings. But there's one thing that keep me going. They are still here with me. I have to make the most of it. I always tell them that I love them so much and take good care. I make sure that they would feel appreciated by kissing them and saying thank you for every little things.

I too believe there is always hope. My hope is in God and that He will bless those people who love and trust in Him. I do not think that means I will be rich, but that I will have the basic nessities of life. I thank God for all He as blessed me with.

I take courage in the though that the only wrong thing for me to do is to do nothing :) That's what helps me decide to keep on striving on life. I think we should never stop fighting - no matter what kind of fight we have. Thanks for the response on my discussion!
