Merry Christmas & happy New Year


JESUS is the Reason for the Season

Christmas is the day that holds all time together
  
Amer Hanna & Family

Sometimes we need space to think and recharge our energy, in order to move on in this unpaved road of life. Sometimes things happen and we need to be able to meet unexpected challenges. However, pure-hearted people and good friends are the shining stars who direct us in the dark nights. Nonetheless, Jesus was and will always be our beacon of Hope, especially when the Middle Eastern Christian and other Non-Muslim components in general, and Iraqi Christianity are on the brink of extinction in Iraq, the homeland of Ibrahim and the forefathers of Jesus Christ in his earthly body. I am deeply saddened and I cannot feel joy when my Iraqi Christian brothers and sisters, as well as other Christians around the world, especially in Syria and Egypt, are facing the darkest fate in modern history.

Despite that sorrow, I wish you, your family and loved ones a very Merry Christmas and happy New Year.

Happy Hanukkah

Wounding the Dark
Amer Hanna Fatuhi

Like a creeping slug came the pitch-black
and like fingers skilled in the art of pickpocketing
All the lights of our souls were extracted
to be left circling a space
of darkness and emptiness
