BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN THE WORLD.
I invite you to come and join me on this pilgrimage to change the world through thankfulness. Perhaps if enough of us join together we can change the negative climate that exists and is overtaking our planet. Together we can move our fellow citizens of to a better, higher and finer place.
Two events of last week have found me thankful. The first event is the peaceful transition of power after a bitterly fought election. I am thankful to live in a country where our democracy is so valued that the acrimonious feelings of the losing side are put aside and our citizens and elected officials work together for the continued success of our democratic systems of government.
The other event that happened last week was the news of the passing of Leonard Cohen. I am so thankful to have lived in a time when Leonard Cohen was writing and recording his very thoughtful and ethereal music. One of the most covered pieces of popular music is Halleluja.
I did my best, it wasn’t much
I couldn’t feel, so I tried to touch
I’ve told the truth, I didn’t come to fool you
And even though it all went wrong
I’ll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah
I hope that by writing these posts that we will move together beyond thankfulness into appreciation. Because appreciation for the moments and things for which we give thanks requires us to be mindful of our lives. “Let us not seek the Republican answer or the Democratic answer, but the right answer. Let us not seek to fix the blame for the past. Let us accept our own responsibility for the future” John F. Kennedy
At the end of the post you will find a link up frog and I hope you will join me on this venture and once a week write a post and link up to others and share what you are thankful for this week.
PLEASE ADD YOUR POST AND TOGETHER WE WILL CHANGE THE WORLD.
