I am a 37-year-old mother of two boys. Nine years ago, I was diagnosed with lupus. Less than two years after this dreadful diagnosis, both of my kidneys collapsed.
Prior to the diagnosis and the subsequent kidney failure, I was employed in a supervisory position at one of the Natural Resources Agencies where I earned a decent salary where I was able to take care of my two boys and me. However, this all changed when I lost my job as a result of the illness even though I was never declared medically unfit by any doctor. As you might imagine, I was devastated, since I had a seven-year-old and a three-year-old who depended on me for everything.
Mr. President, this letter is not about the fact, that I lost a decent paying job and now earn a very meagre salary (gross salary of GY$70,704.00 as a Modern Language teacher in a public Secondary School); this letter is an appeal to you to be afforded an equal and/or similar opportunity to survive a little longer so that I can see my boys become productive citizens of this dear land of ours. You and I both know that ultimately, it is not medical science that dictates the longevity of our lives on this earth but the Almighty God who sustains us. I believe that we can both agree that medical science and doctors certainly help.
After growing up around Hinduism my entire life (but not in my immediate family) I became a practicing Hindu last year.
I live in Essex – a small town in SW Ontario without regular access to a mandir or Hinduism instruction in English. In my search for resources on Hinduism, I came across your Youtube live broadcasts several months ago and have not missed one, since. I found today’s discussion of Chapter 2 Vs 65 of the Bhagavad-Gita especially beautiful. I highly value your broadcasts, your sharing of information and insight into sacred texts – and their relevance to our lives – is a blessing. I am so grateful for the opportunity to ‘attend’ and I wanted to reach out to say thank you.
I hope to visit in person one day; until then, I’ll be watching.
Thank you again.
