Thank you for inviting me as your friend. It is a great privilege extended by you and am much delighted with your invitation, which is readily accepted.
As informed earlier our country is in turmoil. At the moment the people, particularly the Tamils, including myself, are living under great tension due to the happenings in the war zone where tens of thousands of civilians are living in fear of their lives due to aerial bombing and shelling.
The problem has to be sorted out as early as possible to allow the people to lead a pleasant life. That is why I sought the services of MultiCultural Village to bring sustainable peace with good governance to our country.
Your help in sorting out the problem, would be greatly appreciated.

You must come post about your work in our Global Education Collaborative ning! http://globaleducation.ning.com. We're basically just a bunch of teachers interested in promoting global awareness and 21st century skills in our various institutions.
When looking at your profile and your description of your summer work in Africa, I think of two things. One is the Heifer International camp in the south where kids simulate life in various villages and ecomonic states in order to understand others. The other thing I think about is a project that a woman named Mindy Faber works on... the name of the project escapes me, but she's a Global Ed ning member. She's working with youth in the Carribean and here in Chicago on a project related to the slave trade. For more specifics, come visit our ning and you can find Mindy in our membership list. Also, look for Julene Reed who participates in the Heifer program!
Hope that helps!!!
