Response to blog stats

A while ago, my blog stats exceeded 1,000. I was quite surprised. I didn't think that my thoughts were... exposed to so many people. 1,000 might be a super minute amount of people, considering the limitless outreach of the internet, but I am truly grateful that people actually take time to read what I have to say.

According to Blogger, my audience includes people(ranked in descending order) from U.S., Singapore, Indonesia, Germany, Russia, U.K., Canada, South Korea, Australia and India. How cool is that? The wonderful thing about the internet is that it links the whole world(well, almost) within one single portal.

Response to MH17

Some people like to say that things happen for a reason, and I too, have said it before. Then, what could be the reason behind this tragedy? What mistakes are we making, that we need to sacrifice the lives of hundreds, to remind us so?

Franklin Roosevelt said, in 1945, that our world is "an admittedly imperfect*" one. That's almost 70 years ago. Perfection is a fantasy, unreachable probably. But have we put in enough effort to make it less imperfect? What I do...? Will anything that I do be enough?

Just saying

I wonder all the time. But a lot of times, I'm not interested enough to make an effort to find out the answers.

Answers, at many times, have proved to be unsatisfying too.
