Perseverance is our magic wand. Sheer doggedness would turn us into miracle-men. No Messiah is coming. Nevertheless, we're so morally debased that we murder our savior.
Nevertheless, we've to start afresh. Deriving our lessons from honeybee or ant colonies -- the only exception would be that there won't be any hierarchy. No queens or slave-drivers. Our zeal to change our own destiny would be our prime motivation.
This is time for introspection. This is time to molt out of our lethargy and indifference.
Compassion for fellow countrymen. Unbiased and unconditional. Singling out a particular day for compassion won't help. It'd be lived every day.
