Life can be full of hardship. We may grow weary, and suffer even deep sadness. There may always be obstacles and challenges. But we must not give up on dreams awake, and hold fast to that hope inside.
Look at this little boy, Gluay Hom. Five months ago his life was desparate, and much of his life before that. Many elephant lovers around the world prayed that his life could be spared such misery. See him today ! Gluay Hom has a new life. He holds no grudges, and is alive to the kindness that surrounds him. He embraces and squeezes goodness out of every waking moment.
We are fast approaching the year 2020. May we celebrate the new year by living peacefully together, caring for each other, with kindness toward all creatures.
