Hello everyone, today has been a challenging day for many of us. I do not usually speak of the political but I witnessed grief and hostility in many places today. I would like to be a small voice, a proponent of peace and hope. Hope is not the same thing as optimism. Hope walks forward despite the apparent obstacles.
The United States is blessed with a diversity of ethnic groups, cultures, and beliefs. We inhabit a land with an incredible variety of ecosystems and geology. We need to appreciate those gifts in each other and in the places where we live. All of us have our struggles, but we are now being challenged to go forward together. We need to think to the future that our children and their children will inherit. There are many challenges to be overcome in terms of our health, the environment, education, and care of people who are at risk of being abandoned.
Start where your feet are currently planted, with the people you see and work with every day. Subsidiarity states that matters should be handled by the least centralized competent authority…that would be you. We stand together and face forward. It is our responsibility to create the future. There is no time to despair. Take the energy that you would invest in fear and discouragement, and use it to fuel change. Hazard Zet Forward.
“The greatest challenge of the day is: how to bring about a revolution of the heart, a revolution which has to start with each one of us.”
