So it is the end of another year. Fine or crude…it is up to you to decide. In 2007 we ushered this year with so much hopes and in my opinion this didn’t turn out to be so well a year. There were so many bad incidents and also good incidents and a mega event of Olympics in China too. Personally I thought there would be some quiet after Mumbai blasts, but just like the icing, this year, just at the moment of leaving applied some more salt to our existing wounds. Palestine is dripping and flowing with blood. I didn’t comment on any of the forums concerned because when I discuss the plights of Iraqis or Palestinians I become rather sentimental. Don’t tkae me the wrong way. BTW I started this topic just to see what you felt about this year. Good, bad, ugly whatever your feelings are about this year, express them here.

I don't know how to express my feeling.I couldn't forget the 5.12 earthquake ,because I lost my countrymen,and I couldn't forget the Olmpics because It's the first time for our country to hold the Olmpics.

I hope 2009 year would be a good year ,there is no natural disasters,no war,no unemployment,no crime in the world .

The same goes for me, fly fish.

I'm sitting here alone, enclosed in my room. It's not locked or something, though.

It's just I'm not able to make use of the outside.

It's meaningless to me. So I will be all alone on todays evening, wondering wheather my live will change for good .. or will it stay dull like it has ever been ?

I don't look out into the world, with any wishes or hopes. Lastly, you can't change what happend and what will happen, because we are just a little particle in myriad of particles. Especially I can't do anything, not even end my own misery.

Doitsu, you must have heard this many times before but I will repeat Why are you so pessimistic towards life. Even physically challenged people struggle to live a repeatable life then why are you so dull towards life.
Agreed that human life is not more than a particle of dust in this world but if you know it is so worthless then why spend time in repenting. C’mon we all had been hit by this economic meltdown.
