Well, Now that That’s Over…
The campaign, the election, the inauguration – it’s all been a thrilling ride, full of excitement. We have a new president, a new start and a renewed hope and belief in a new and better tomorrow. New, new NEW! It’s a party!
“There is more to life than increasing its speed.” –Gandhi
But in all the excitement it’s important to remember that we still have a job to do. The Real Work is yet ahead and it’s time to renew our commitment to making this world a better place.
“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.“ -M.K. Gandhi
If you are reading this, you probably have a warm bed in a safe place and you know where your next meal is coming from. If you are reading this, you probably don’t have to worry about whether the warm bed in the safe place and the satisfying meal will be there tomorrow. And if you are reading this, you can probably provide hope and help for someone in need of a warm bed in a safe place and a satisfying meal.
“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread” –Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
We cannot sit back and watch the change as we sat back to watch the Inauguration on television. We must “BE the change [we] want to see in the world.” (M.K.G.)
Today, not tomorrow, not next week or next month, TODAY, take a moment to think about what you can do to “be the change” and then do it. Just Do It. (I think Nike quoted Gandhi.)
“What do I think of Western civilization? I think it would be a very good idea.“ -Mahatma Gandhi
To President Obama: May God bless you with Truth. May He bless us with Understanding. May He be for you, for your family and for all of us the very Center of our Focus, the Purpose in our Vision and the Guide to our Actions. And when you call us to war against poverty, violence and injustice, may you hear a resounding “Yes we can” from every citizen in every corner of this country. So be it!
