"I am unhappy for Thailand because Taksin chiavat is very bad," wrote a Thai friend to me on my Facebook Wall yesterday.
And I reply:
"We are really concerned about your country and saddened by what has thrown it into such chaos recently. The loss of lives, money and, above all, peace that has for such a long time your country is blessed with is very unfortunate. I'll have Thailand, you, Aom and everyone of my Thai friends (including the elephants) in my prayer!"
In a way, the theme of "death" goes on. The "loss of lives" was mentioned in my reply.
Anyway, may God bless the lovely country and its lovely people. May the crisis be over and peace and order be restored.
