Give us strength

Give me faith, oh Jah, I pray, oh Lord,
To face another day ohh, yeah.

Lord give me strength, to face another day.
Carry on life's road, carry all my load.
Give me strength, oh Jah, to carry on, oh my Lord.

Oh, Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end,
Please hear me when I plead.
All help already pass and, all help for years to come,
Without who am I could not be, yeah.
Many are trying to leave, you outta their lives,
But I wouldn't be so unwise.
And so I promise to serve thee, oh my Lord,
And I beg thee some mercy.

Lord, give me strength to face another day.
To journey along life's road, to carry my heavy load.
Give me strength, oh Jah, to carry on, oh my Lord, yeah.

Life has become a burden, living in this evil system,
Oh Jah, please strengthen me.
I cannot make it along, I need you as my own,
Oh Jah, I call on thee, yeah.
Some are trying to leave, you out of their lives,
But I wouldn't be so unwise.
And so I promise to serve thee with all my all,
And I beg thee some mercy.

Lord give me…

THREE CUPS OF BS

Alanna Shaikh in Foreign Policy:

The world was shocked by a report on CBS's 60 Minutes this week that accused bestselling author and humanitarian Greg Mortenson of being a fraud. Not only were some of the stories from his book fabricated, 60 Minutes alleges, but the charity that Mortenson created to build schools in Pakistan and Afghanistan never built many of the facilities it has taken credit for. Mortenson's Three Cups of Tea didn't, as it claimed, bring education to rural Pakistan and Afghanistan. Its finances are a mess, and the charity does not even seem to have kept track of how many schools it built or how many students attended them.

While much of the uproar has been over the lies Mortenson peddled, I can't help wondering: Why, exactly, did we ever think that Mortenson…

Parents of gay men

NDTV's Barkha Dutt interviewed mothers of gay men. Missing were any lesbian or fathers of the gay men. But certainly a good first start.
