Selfless Service!

It is very easy to criticize public officials, politicians and the most powerful individuals on the planet whose influence sometimes affect us all, in some way.

Now Obama sits comfortably on a chair in the Oval office, after a hard fought election, I wish him and the American citizenry the best in the next four years. I hope Mitt Romney realizes that he fought a noble campaign to unseat an incumbent President and gave us all a few worrying moments. I can assure him the right candidate eventually won the race. 

Our planet is going through some of the most challenging times in recent months and a change in the presidency in the most powerful nation on earth would have further added some uncertainty to the situation and the numerous changes currently taking place all over the globe. 

I was very proud to see many young Americans go out to vote last week and it seemed the majority voted for President Obama. I am impressed that the very young have now decided to be proactive, to influence and to participate in the politics that would affect and could change the quality of their lives.

However, the main thrust of this post today, is to give thanks to those politicians, public officials and citizens of the world, who, in different countries of the globe do give service to humanity. Too many times the news is about self serving politicians and corrupt public officials stealing from public coffers, taking bribes and generally selling the citizenry out to the highest bidder.

I don't like to comment on politics, but since the US is relevant as the most powerful nation, it is important to pray for her to be stable and at peace with the rest of us. China too is picking a new leader to run that massive nation and it is important that she too remains stable.

Too many times, the focus of the media is on the negative things done by negative individuals, public officials and politicians. It sometimes gives the average man on the street, the impression that most rulers and politicians are corrupt and self serving. True, there are bad elements in government, police and the armed forces, but the vast majority are decent, law abiding citizens who go out each day all over the planet to give selfless service to their citizenry. It is those people, from presidents to pauper whom I will hail as the true heroes.

Those, who despite the challenges they face daily, go out of their way to make a difference in our lives, may God bless you all!
