To all our wonderful readers, on behalf of the team at Thai Enquirer, Merry Christmas and season’s greetings.
What a weird and historical year it has been for us all, not just here in Thailand but all over the world. For the first time in many, many generations, we are staring at the effects of a global pandemic.
Covid-19 has disrupted life in every single continent and affected us all regardless of socio-economic status, political affiliation, or religious belief. The havoc it has wrecked will likely continue to be felt for years, if not decades.
But such a tragedy can also give us time to pause and reflect and be thankful as well.
For the past year, Thai Enquirer has witnessed tragedy and triumph, we have seen paradigm shifts in the political discourse and have seen both the best and worst that our country has to offer.
But on this Christmas Day, let us give thanks not for revolutionary ideas or reactionary sentiment but for each other.
I truly believe that the worst parts of Thai society can be fixed by the best parts of Thai society and I hope you join me in sharing that belief. Regardless of our differences, political or otherwise, at the end of the day, we all share the same hopes and dreams. We want to be proud of our country, we want a better life for our friends and our family, and we want to leave behind a better future for our children.
We might differ in how we wish to get there but 2021 offers us an opportunity to be constructive rather than destructive.
So in the spirit of Christmas, let us find solace in each other’s company. Let us find peace with each other and let us find hope for the future in each other.
Merry Christmas to all and thank you for your continued support.
