In the same breath, you cannot wait for everything around you to become peaceful in order for you to say “I am peaceful.” In both happiness and peace, there is a heart of strength, determination and steadfastness; a heart that has the power to make things happen. You have to be at peace. You have to be happy. Now.”
C. JoyBell C.

Let us now plan to build and reconstruct and regenerate our great nation…”
Muhammad Ali Jinnah
