Anger & Answers

Standard

Sometimes it’s okay to be angry – at injustice, hunger, poverty and discrimination.   These are universal struggles that require the entire global community to focus on seeking answers, rather than assessing blame.

It starts with me.  Today, I will join the community and focus my energies on solutions.

“It is wise to direct your anger towards problems – not people; to focus your energies on answers – not excuses.”
William Arthur Ward

Welcome to the Community

Today, my friends welcomed a son into their lives.  And the world welcomed new parents and a family.  I received the message and precious photo via text from the hospital. Friendship – a word that expresses the power of community.

“In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.
Khalil Gibran
