Children of War, Kurdistan, Iraq, Iran

First, I apologize to you all because no update for a long time. I'm very busy lately because I have to give time and thoughts to the company, for the life of many people involved in it, and to achieve our big goal. In this post I want to share a video clip that I found on YouTube. This video has touched my heart even though I do not understand its language, a proof that the art (picture, song or video) is universal. Many people said that a picture can reveal a thousand words, moreover a video. And I use this video as a MISSILE to shoot into your heart. So, DO NOT close your eyes and hopefully it can reach into your HEART. What? Human rights you said? Where is it? Ohh... I call every war is the stupid war whatever its reasons.

I love her first

I publish this post as a father of my only daughter. I don't write much here because my writing can be very long. You will be bored to read it. But, the two video clips below are sufficient to represent of what is in my mind. Both video clip below was from the link in my old email archive sent by a friend. In the video above the father said: The first one to embrace her was me. The first one to kiss her was me. The first one to care for her was me. Still, I hope you will be the one who accompanies her for life. But if there ever comes a day when you don't love her anymore... Please don't tell her. Tell me. I will take her home. The song that the father sings is called "I Love Her First" by Heartland. Look at the two of you dancing that way. Lost in the moment and each other's face. So much in love you're alone in this place. Like there's nobody else in the world. I was enough for her not long ago. I was her number one. She told me so. And she still mea

Racist habits

I write this post because a reader via the contact form asked my opinion on why racism persists in modern society. Well, I think it's all about labeling, directing opinion and hate. There are five pillars that contribute to these circumstance. Family. What is talked in a family, including casual chat, indirectly shapes the child's opinion (consciously or not). Early education in family plays the most important role in forming the mindset of our children. I am pessimistic if their parents also racist. So watch your mouth! Religious leaders. Some religious leaders are fanatical and then simply articulate verses in the holy book literally (verbatim) without understanding the context of the circumstances when the verse was written, or just quoting a snippet by ignoring the context as a whole. So watch your understanding! Politicians or public figure. One example is the deliberate use of the term "Chinese virus" to provoke discrimination, also for political interests. So w

Email subscription changes

Starting in July 2021, Google has announced to stop the email subscription service powered by Feedburner. As we know that the "Follow By Email" widget on Blogger is powered by Feedburner which is owned by Google. That means any new post published on Blogger platform after June 2021 (including this blog) will not be sent to the subscriber's email automatically. For that reason, I moved the email subscription service on this blog to " Follow.it ". Please click the Subscribe menu at the top to proceed.

Here is the default feed address for this blog: Atom 1.0 = https://love-ely.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default RSS 2.0 = https://lov

Human patience threshold

That is the title that need to be ponder together in the midst of Covid-19 pandemic. Do you like that your personal freedom constantly being restricted in the name of health protocols? Sane people will say diplomatically it's not a matter of liking it or not. It is for your goodness, your family and others. So true. But to be honest in our heart, including me, frankly don't like it. Basically, human are social creatures who want to interact with other people. We all already know how great the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on human life. The economy slumped, many companies went bankrupt, unemployment increased. Even the Covid-19 vaccine has become the best-selling merchandise that is being fought over by many countries. There are two things I imagine. The first is the group of those who are still viable financially (hopefully still can). Maximum they will reach the limit of psychological patience which is experiencing tremendous boredom, if not called stress. Perhaps a psychol

Understanding political from human nature

When Soviet Union was strong, they were labeled with all negative things that is related to socialism (stigmatized). Perhaps because the "eastern" European power were seen as a threat to western domination. No political attack at all on China at that time because China still weak, poor, called as bicycle country, so not considered as a threat. But when China began to advance rapidly, moreover approaching USA, they began to be perceived as a threat to western domination. The revival of the "eastern" world in Asia which was firstly represented by Japan, then South Korea, was not considered as a threat because both of them willing to follow western styles and patterns. Unlike China who want to stand out with their own distinctive style and patterns. This was considered as a threat to western domination. The game of thrones . Yes, that is true. History has recorded abundant stories of power struggles that ended in blood. Just look at it. No intense competition between t

Dilemma in vaccination

COVAX is a WHO program to ensure the availability and accessibility of the COVID-19 vaccine worldwide in a fast, fair and equitable manner. As we know, only a few countries are capable of producing the Covid-19 vaccine. This initiative sounds ideal for many poor and developing (and non-producing) countries. Presently Covid-19 vaccine has become something contested by many countries, much more valuable than any drugs. Because it can be used as the " game changer " in economical and political matters. Will the producing countries are willing to provide adequate amounts of vaccine for other countries while their people really need it . Well, how do you think about that? I think, if the herd immunity only occurs in a few countries, then this pandemic will not end, which at the end will worry you constantly in doing business activity with other countries. You can not alone, righ? Please read the news about the worries of rich countries hoarding Covid-19 vaccine and the wealthy

WHY

I do not know who create this song. I do not understand its lyric. I just know that this song really touched my heart. I listened to it over and over. Eventually I tried to find out the meaning of the first 3 characters of the lyrics, and found its meaning: 为什么 = WHY. My friend told me that the question was answered in the lyrics: 因为我 = BECAUSE OF ME. Let me go through this post begging you fellow Christian brother please return to the beginning of Christianity, let's back to the Bible. My religious consciousness told me that Jesus did NOT teach you to create many denominations of Christianity. If Christianity begun from one person, that is Jesus, then why I see many denominations to this day. Let this world only know one Christianity, one faith, one communion, one congregation. I am begging you, please! Post update 24 March 2021: The greatness of God (infinite) is beyond human knowledge (finite). Please remember the story about St. Augustine and a child by seaside whose want to po
