Mother Teresa is a phenomenon in the God's creation.
The poem 'LIFE' is well-known as a great quote from her wonderful sayings.
This is an attempt to understand what is LIFE and its interpretation from each line in that poem.

Here, I examine how 'Life is tragedy' and how to 'confront it'.

Life is tragedy, confront it.


All of the services undertaken by Mother Teresa were not accepted as such.

She used to write letters to the heads of various nations on some key issues.

Many of her letters got negative responses, for which she would feel very bad.

When the war broke out between Iraq and the US, she wrote a common letter to the heads of both the countries saying: “This war might bring victory to you, but it will cause death, destruction and misery to the people on either side.” She stressed the need to abandon the path of war and violence.

In spite of her message of peace, the war continued and ended with great loss of human lives.

And there was an unexpected letter to Mother Teresa from the health minister of Iraq requesting for her services to take care of orphans, destitute and helpless victims of war.

She did not say anything other than attending on them with kindness and love.

She confronted the tragedy of war with her compassion and love.

It happpens when you bear a religion and trry to show anther religiously dominant nation the truth of what you mean. Thy never quite undestand the message because of biias until someone coomee forth in a new colourr and llight to give it to them liike a resounding slap on the face wherein they finally see the true message they got from the person who left the true legacy behind,

Lovely post to uplift our spirits and direct us to the journey of life to the right path, Rathna. We should do what is right and we know too what it is. Then our cynical world will slowly fill with love and compassion - siva

Those are inspiring messages from the life and activities of once a living saint. If Ma Theresa is still with us, what could have been her messages to the saber brandishing North Korea.
