The Karen Refugee Committee,
 Newsletter and Activity reportDecember-2012
December is the month full of expectations, happiness and joy. It is the festive season and formany of us it unites the family members who are being separated. As the dark cloud in the sky slowlyturns into a bright and clear sky, it manifests to us that there is hope for us in the future. It is the lastmonth of the year which awaits us for the new year to come. For many countries, it is a leisure time andholidays for the workers, and students. And for the refugees, it is time where family members couldhave fun, organize activities and fun program, visitation to relatives and time of thanksgiving for beingblessed throughout the year. The spending of this kind of good time seems to pass faster than thedifficult time.Moreover, this is the month where the Majesty the King of Thailand celebrates his (85) yearsbirthday. We the refugees, along with the rest of Thai people are happy to see His Majesty the King andthe whole family with good health and strength. We also wish the Majesty the King with happiness andlong live!For many refugees, the desire to go home is ultimately reaching it highest point with thepromising changes in Burma, but the present ground reality is that, there is no concrete implementationof the progress taking place and the fear still remains in the mind of the people. Therefore, though wewant to go home, we still have to wait patiently till the future is as bright as the sky. To our benefactorswho have been feeding us for many years, will need to continue to support us till we could go home, if not we will be facing our own fate in the end.We would like to thank all the individuals and organizations who have been good and helpingus, as you await to enter into a new year, may there be peace, happiness, and success to you all!
