Take it easy

IT is that time of the year when human kindness and merrymaking abound.

IT is that time of the year when human kindness and merrymaking abound.

The spirit of Christmas even flows through the veins of those who are not remotely Christian, especially in this part of the world.

Our world would be different if our state of mind was festive every day.

So we should welcome such relief. An island of joy in a sea of poverty, corruption, HIV-Aids and crime will always be a welcome break.

Unfortunately, some have the tendency to overindulge and spoil the fun.

Road accidents caused by alcohol, among other things, are just one example of how quickly joy can turn into pain.

For your sake and for your friends, families and all of us, we urge you to have a ball in a disciplined manner.

Remember, too much of anything leads to suffering.
