What are you happy for this past year?

Hello everyone,

I spent some time this Christmas in Seattle with my Iphone interviewing the people that live on the streets of Seattle and to ask them what they are happy for. The video is entitled 100 reasons to be happy and it is a testimonial from the people that have had it the toughest The responses were very moving and it had a great effect on me. I would love to know from others what are you truly thankful for in 2011. Much love was shared on that day and I would love to share their message with the world.

Thank you,

    Feb 1 2012: This year 2011 has been a tumultuous one for my country Pakistan. Political instability, economic crisis, cold war situation in north-west Pakistan are the situations seems not to have much too happy about.

    But after all, I take this opportunity to wish you and your loved ones a wonderful NY. I pray it will be a safe one and I also pray that we are able to take on the challenges in our work, in our country and in our personal lives that we will be faced with in 2012.

    “I am ever confident that we will”

    With sincere gratitude 
