IF YOU ARE NOT THANKFUL TO THOSE PROVIDING SERVICES ON YOUR BEHALF, YOU CAN NOT BE THANKFUL TO ALLAH, YOUR CREATOR, SAID PROPHET MUHAMMAD (PBUH).
New Yorker are breathing cleaner air, consuming less salt, drinking less sugary beverages, living in quieter neighborhoods, losing less innocent children in the webs of social services bureaucracy, graduating more students, seeing more tourists dollars, opening businesses quicker, getting answers from municipal agencies faster, coexisting harmoniously, dreaming bigger, volunteering more, donating generously, feeling prouder, concentrating on race or religious differences less, living longer, and most importantly dying less from violence.
New York City did not become the safest big city in theses United States quietly though.
ACLU, politically correct politicians, AP reporters, and all others who have been fighting more for violent criminals’ rights than the mayor’s morally, ethically, legally and justifiably crime preventing programs, have never failed to mislead weak-minded New Yorkers about this mayor and his most honorable Police commissioner’ noble leadership.
Sadly, with laughter of course, we have no doubt the above mentioned groups would try to credit the mayor’s achievements to all other nonsenses they have been naively peddling as alternatives. But the scariest thing of all is who would replace this God-sent mayor and Police Commissioner. It is very painful to think about this inevitable possibility.
Where violence is concerned, New Yorkers choose the New York City trend not Chicago’s.
Leadership is lonely, sacrifice is hard, being brave is dangerous, ignoring special interest mafias is suicidal and worst yet dealing with the above mentioned individuals and groups has always been a career-ender, unless of course you are the honorable Mr. Bloomberg and Mr. Kelly. New Yorkers will forever indebted to their dual leadership.
Long live independent leadership!
With my African and Muslim background, I would suggest extending this mayoral term for at least 12 more years, if we can’t convince him to be a 2016 presidential contender.
