REST IN PEACE, MY FRIEND, AS YOU LIE ASLEEP IN THE ARMS OF OUR LORD SOON TO BE AWAKEN TO A NEW ETERNAL LIFE.

Aren't our mail safe anymore?

This is shocking. Two weeks ago, I sent a registered cover to my business associate using an envelope that was in pristine condition.

Upon receiving the cover, my business associate took photos of the envelope and sent them to me..

The condition of the envelope was appalling. Not only were the sides peppered with tears but it was ripped open. They even used a tape and crudely taped back the opening on one side. A large part of the envelope was still left open.

Fortunately there were no important documents involved. So even if they were lost, I still have copies with me.

Do I suspect that the authorities are now checking our mail? Looks like certain people are getting jumpy these days, and definitely, registered posts are no longer secured.

That moment has arrived ....

Two months ago, was the 20th anniversary when I first took the plunge to leave the security of the bank to venture into my own business that is related to the human development industry. I still could remember the Saturday before I left, my CEO had a long meeting with me, coaxing me to stay on. I told him I wish I could but I must make the necessary move as I have already arrived at the cross road of my life and if I didn't make a move then, I would never move at all.

Twenty years on, the painful decision that I dread most has finally arrived a month ago, i.e. whether to finally hang up my laser pointer for good as I felt I have done all I could partaking in the industry growth more so, seeing to the skill improvement of my charges.

During this time, I met many interesting people, from all walks of life and stations. But most of all, I enjoyed fully the many intellectual discourses that we had during and after each training session.  What is even amazing is that some of the participants who attended my sessions many years ago, are still in touch with me today via FaceBook and WhatsApp.

I wonder how many of you are now at that cross road of your life having to make that choice.

To donate or not to donate my blood ...

I may not have donated as many as 52 times as this guy but have been donating from time to time as and when the occasion calls for it. So would the GH or Red Cross staff be visiting our church any time sooner for their next blood donation call? Blood derived from the Catholic community is definitely non-halal? So how?
