    With the people of the Middle East it was the custom of the great families to send their children into the desert, to spend part of their childhood amongst one of the Bedouin tribes.
    It was for the children to breath the desert's fresh air, their bodies to feel the desert wind, sand and sun. And their souls to drink the bounty of the desert.
    In the desert, one is conscious of the immortality of space, and in virtue of that realization escape the domination of time.
    By striking camp one can slough off the yesterdays, and tomorrow seems less of a fatality.
    Is it any wonder then, that all God’s prophets were born and lived in the desert?
    To fully understand God’s true nature, maybe we too should spend part of our childhood in the desert, and discover why Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Mohammad spent their early life in the wilderness.
    Perhaps then, we can appreciate the kindness that God wants us to have toward each other. Maybe then, we too can look out and see the light of God.
    For now let us celebrate and thank the Lord and count our blessings for all that He has given us and for this great nation of ours. Let us pray and resolve to share our blessings with those less fortunate around the world through the gift of our profession.  [ R. G. ]
