Hard Times

Have you ever felt like every thing is against you and, when you should feel bad (really bad), you feel calm and happy instead? This is how I describe the last week.

The bad is beyond my own control. This country faces a very difficult debt crisis. The authorities had promised that the sectors of health and education would be spared. However, some health workers and the university staff has not been paid for September. It’s nearly two months without salary. In a certain way, even my home has been affected by the dishonesty of a few.

Yet, hard times are making us feel even closer. That’s how human beings are designed to be. Difficulties seem to bring out the best in us.
