my world




To be able to live a part of your life in your imagination is a blessing. Remember to live in the present, because the past is gone and the future is out of your control.

I remember when I thought people in their 20’s were adults. Now all of my friends are in their 20’s and everybody is just kind of fumbling around bumping into each other, trying to figure out where the free food is

This is true. In medical school, we are easily lured into lectures and talks by the promise of free food.

How Toronto's Muslim Community Uncovered the Would-Be Train Bombers

In light of recent events (ie.Boston bombings) I feel scared. I feel scared not for my physical safety but for the radical views that these events have invoked in many.

Acts of terrorism have existed since ancient times. Perhaps just not named the same way. It is not a new idea. But the way we view them now have changed.

To see comments like “all these people should just die” show not only ignorance, but show that the people saying those words may be just as bad. They just happen to be on the “better” side - and in a cynical view, then the “Western” side.

What I fear the most is the there are many people who are upset, unstable, and will only be marginalized more and angered more (rightfully!) by the extremist views that these bombings have re-established. 

It will turn into a never ending cycle.

I do not sympathize with acts of terrorism. There is no excuse, nor any reason for measures that hurt innocents. But I sympathize all those who are now plagued by prejudice, discrimination and hate merely by perceived association. 

I don’t know how true this article is. I didn’t research it more. But all I care about is the message. I want to remind myself, and others, to open their minds and take a look at the bigger picture.

I sincerely wish you will have the experience of thinking up a new idea, planning it, organizing it, and following it to completion and having it be magnificently successful. I also hope you’ll go through the same process and have something “bomb out.”

I wish you could know how it feels “to run” with all your heart and lose - horribly.

I wish that you could achieve some great good for mankind, but have nobody know about it except you.

I wish you could find something so worthwhile that you deem it worthy of investing your life.

I hope you become frustrated and challenged enough to begin to push back the very barriers of your own personal limitations.

I hope you make a stupid, unethical mistake and get caught red-handed and are big enough to say those magic words “I was wrong.”

I hope you give so much of yourself that some days you wonder if it is worth it all.

I wish for you a magnificent obsession that will give you a reason for living and purpose and direction in life.

I wish for you the worst kind of criticism for everything you do, because that makes you fight to achieve beyond what you normally would.

I wish for you the experience of leadership.
