August - a month usually filled with frolic and fun of Summer, has now drawn to a close after a stunning turbulent time of right wing and racist agitations in Charlottesville, Virginia, United States(US); after terror events in Barcelona, Alcanar, Cambrils, Subirats and Catalonia, Spain; after more terror incidents in Colombia, Indian, Iraq, Afghanistan, France, the United Kingdom(UK), Belgium, Turkey, Syria, Russia and elsewhere; after menacing and dangerous rocket launches and continued anti-world rhetoric by North Korea; and after life-taking natural disasters from flood waters in Sierra Leone, India, Bangladesh, Nepal and Houston, Texas.
August 2017 is over. The cools winds over Washington, DC, this first day of September, appear indicative of a cooling of tempers and of the ushering in of a rational approach to solve problems and of the needed application of relief efforts to assist victims of natural disasters; we hope. The winds of change of September signal of hope for humanity.
Yet, September - the month that claims to be the one to "remember", unfolds some bad memories including those of 16-years-ago when the US witnessed it worse terrorist event.
But all in all, humankind - the fearless and heroic people of peace, liberty, equality and rule of law, has amid all the negative agitations, exhibited am unyielding resolve to ensure the continuity of the human race and the protection of the environment.
So in spite of whatever events September yields, the advocates for peace, justice and the protection of Planet Earth, will continue with tireless efforts to promote tranquility and civility. Here's to the humanitarians and the protectors of the environment.
