Holy Hypocrisy but መስቀሉ ግን ሁሌም ዘለዓለማዊ ነው

Seeing these two pictures of our leaders I could only see that same Cross, one that was symbolized by the cane of Moses; healed those who saw and recognized it and the one on which Christ was wounded for my transgression, bruised for my iniquities and carrying the chastisement of my peace in his stripes.Nothing more nothing less.


Society deserves to see pictures of leaders revealing good gesture and in a way showing some kind of loyalty to God but oftentimes history has taught us that leaders use such presentations to essentially justify or back up their wrong doing with something that society can simply relate to. This is what we call Holy Hypocrisy and I doubt people be fooled by presentations as such any more because action speaks more than words.PERIOD!!!

Words

Words can kill
words can give life
Words can bound the mind
Words can pierce the heart
Words can bore hope
Words can crush the spirit
Words can build
Up character and principle

አጋጣሚውና ተጋጣሚዎቹ

Sorry for dragging you into my ጉራማሌ view with a ጉራማሌ writing but I had seen these two interviews in the past and noticed a surprising likeness and had always wanted to share it. So that is where I am taking you.
I don't even think I ought to try to use words to describe how hard it is for me to follow Syria’s story .The cruelty of the government and the ambience is beyond the threshold of what my gut can take and even beyond the adjectives I know to describe the fear and the annoyance I feel so I have been avoiding the news as much as I can but on one particular show on AC 360, Anderson hosted an interview with Syrian ambassador for the US which for some reason I found to be interesting. Listening to one of the prominent individuals of Assad is one thing but in fact what makes it more interesting is the guy is an outright liar and he does it with such level of confidence that it became intimidating for Anderson who squirmed throughout the interview.
But I can tell you the most striking, jarring thing about this particular interview is it just does not sound as if you are seeing or hearing it for the first time, may be not a 100% déjà vous but a very familiar setting.  And then aha...
I have seen a similar interview two weeks back. The intriguing similarity is both interviews were held by two of the biggest news broadcasters (CNN and BBC) by two of the most known journalist with the Ambassadors for UK and USA from countries, whose records deference for human right  is in question both denied the finds of the investigation and essentially the outcome reported.It is very entertaining to see the similarity. Here is Bashir and Abdirashid

You Are Not Powerless

Even though you feel your hands are tied with iron chains.
Even though your mind filled with frustration from the voiceless screams.
Even though loneliness becomes the dawn shine that wakes you up
Even though your hope replaced with darkness as cold as ice.
Even though the air you breathe become as heavy as a rock.
Never stop dreaming because no one or nothing can kill your dream and that dream is your power that reigns over all the weaknesses.

You are never powerless

A Mother is a Mother at heart

As I look at you
All innocent and brand new
Free of the world
And all its unclean influences
I wonder
Can I really say no
Except give you my all 
To teach you
To love you
To protect you
You are so dependent upon me
I don't want to fail
You are too precious
  To disappoint
