Eid Mubaruk From All Of Them ...

 Syrian, Libyan, Roma,
Kashmiri, Hazara, Refugees in Kenya
Afghani, Palestinian, Malian, Rohingyan

As we launch into a food holocaust this weekend to celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr and quickly forget the lessons that Ramadan hoped to teach us... like solidarity.

Let us spare a moment, while we sip our fancy drinks, to remember the millions who have no access to clean water and all those who cannot afford new clothes, or the 20 million who will starve to death by the end of this year in the Horn of Africa. And those who will not get a moment of silence from the gun fire and bombing and those who won't get any rest because they have to keep running for their lives.

From All of them and the many others that I have not mentioned...
Eid Mubaruk to you and yours.
