52 WEEKS OF THANKFULNESS – WEEK 30

52weekw

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.

This week finds me thinking about the momentous changes that are going to happen in our country starting Friday.  I am thankful that I live in a country that celebrates a man whose life brought out the finer aspects of our country and brought about so much positive change, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  And, I am thankful that I live in a country where his spirit of non-violenent action continues to be kept alive in the Woman’s March on Washington.  This event is intended to be a non-violent protest in the form of marches all over our country.  Women will gather on Saturday, January 21st to “show solidarity and to demand our safety in a time when our country is marginalizing us and making sexual assault an electable and forgivable norm. “

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” Martin Luther King, Jr.

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.

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.

About Bernadette

I live in the small town of Haddonfield, NJ. I am at an age in my life when I seem to spend time thinking and musing about life. These musings are usually stimulated by my walks through Haddonfield, my reading of books and fellow bloggers, and my interaction with my group of fabulous family and friends.
