How do you celebrate X'mas during a recession?

How do you celebrate X'mas during a recession?

It's chilly on christmas winter with last minute shoppers trying to buy their last minute presents. Yet, it still sparks the question of how one will survive for tomorrow in a day and age of online technology yet broke and penny pinching each day.

As we celebrate Christmas 2008, there are so many mixed feelings about life nowadays. One common question we hear is what happen? How did we get to this ordeal of hardship? Yet, on another angle we celebrate life on what blessings we have and face the common reality of economic uncertainty.

With barely a month for the 44th President of the United States to be inducted into office facing one of the greatest economic challenges of our era, let us remember that life after all is not just about material wealth, it is something to be cherish and let us asked ourselves why we continue to live day by day.

Each of us have different economic situations right now but generally everyone's finances is tight. But perhaps we have to face the reality and accept this reality that we have to give courage, hope, love and inspiration which is the entire meaning of life.

To all our readers who have constantly followed us online through the years, our loyal customers who have always continued buying our books and products at ADLE International, many thanks and warmest X'mas blessings.

Warmest regards,

Size 10 Shoe Throwing Incident and Cultural Diversity


Support independent publishing: buy this book on Lulu. As the headlines recently reported about the shoe throwing incident in Iraq to a foreigh leader made a lot of headlines. But nevertheless, we have to understand somehow that people have different cultures, backgrounds, beliefs and up bringing.

As such international incident gave a spotlight yet a concern for the security of the most powerful man in the world, we should also try to understand why people do such things sometimes because of the different adversities they go through and sometimes times are such so tough that we foget the consequences of our actions.

As the global economic recession get's deeper in the light of an incoming administration hopefully we can acknowledge that we have to be more sensitive to the issues at hand. Though, there is a lot of the plate of a new leader, maybe it is a sign of the times that we remember that people have lives, feelings and hopes.

I still need to see more younger generation of young entrepreneurs and leaders with new ideas that should be heard than the typical political experiences. But regardless, how an incident is understood, we still have to respect that a foreign leader still deserves the respect and dignity.

As we age in life we learned from a lot of our mistakes as it is not a perfect world. The reality is how to learn from these mistakes and likewise understand the cultural beliefs and diversity of people.

FYI, Mr. President Elect - Choose Your People Wisely


Support independent publishing: buy this book on Lulu. FYI, Mr. President Elect - Choose Your People Wisely

It might be overwhelming because of the so much huge expectations before inauguration with the new bailwicks in Washington but as you said at the end of the day you have to take responsibility.

Like the so many of us who were really fighting for change all this time during your campaign yet we know we are going to be be forgotten again when you are finally in power. All we ask is that you remain cautious as you have done so before and at least always stick to the main goal.

The temptations of the politicians will always be there, the power of the rich and powerful and the so called corporate smarts. But just remember, change was about identifying people who are unheard with but has the qualifications because they have been there once and sufferred from the very same capitalism.

I remember in November 1997 during the APEC Economic Leaders Summit then President Bill Clinton was very open to the recommendations of the youth component, women and other minorities. He knew that it has been proven before that only through acknowledging the small laymen and citizens were the basic ingredient of having a surplus to live behind. The Asian Financial crisis was just starting then prior to the Stock market collapse of 1999 but the key for investors was belief in the administration and the chain of command.

The last eight years became the opposite when wrong decisions were made and stuhbornness started.

We are hopeful that you have still the youthful reluctance of becoming really idealistic yet realistic as to why who have won so much respect in all sectors and arena.

So Mr. President Elect yet we may not be even qualified to be in your list on your induction, at least show us the sign that you will remain the same.
