Remember, lifelong habits die hard. It is difficult enough to simply recognize our anger and jealousy, let alone to make an effort to hold back the old familiar tide of feeling or analyze its cause and results. Transforming the mind is a slow and gradual process. It is a matter of ridding ourselves, bit by bit, of instinctive, harmful habit patterns and becoming familiar with habits that necessarily bring positive results - to ourselves and others.

My dad is from Hué. This past Christmas, he and his friend shared their stories of their first American Christmas in 1975, how it was the saddest either of them could remember. Dad had no money, no family with him, and no hope of returning home (because of his anti-government literature he has yet to go back); luckily, his sponsors were journalists and helped him learn the ropes of American media. No matter how rough his business is doing today, I can never forget the importance of what he’s done to get here.

“At independence in 1975, Mozambique was one of the world’s poorest countries. Socialist mismanagement and a brutal civil war from 1977-92 exacerbated the situation. Mozambique remains dependent upon foreign assistance for more than half of its annual budget, and the majority of the population remains below the poverty line.”
