Commitments We Make To Each Other

A  L  O  H  A !

"Keep your power 
just in the day 
that you are living 
on the Earth, 
and not on
 how to maneuver

Gary Zukav

" The commitments we make 

to each other

 — through Medicare,

 and Medicaid, 

and Social Security — 

these things do not sap our initiative;

 they strengthen us. 

They do not make us a nation of 


 they free us to take the risks

 that make this country great.”

President Barack Obama

Second inaugural speech

" As for me,

 except for an occasional

 heart attack,

 I feel as young 

as I ever did. "

Robert Benchley

" Happy is he

 whose own faults

 prevent him 

from castigating 

the faults of

 others. "

Love that Turkish proverb and was thinking I wish I could send that to a couple of people at work. And then I think I just keep that one for myself. Peace be with you, too, Cloudia.

I like all of ths. The president's words are so rich. And ugh, that quote made me think of my faults, but maybe I'll be more compassionate. Thanks always for the beauty and wisdom you distribute.

Indeed, where would any of us be without the help and support of others. Family, friends, neighbors, and government. I'm glad the President did not back away from government's role in supporting it's citizens. Thanks, Cloudia.
