"Coming together is a 
beginning; keeping 
together is progress; 
working together 
is success."  
                Henry Ford 

"I hear your need. 
I feel your feelings. 
My wisdom flows from 
the Highest Source. 
salute that Source in you.-

- Let us work together 
for unity and love."
   Gandhi's Prayer For Peace

Linking to


The US Election
is over.

 "A delicate balance is required 
to combat violence perpetrated 
in the name of a religion, 
an ideology or an economic system. . .
But there is another temptation 
which we must especially guard against: 
the simplistic reductionism which sees only good or evil; or, if you will, the righteous and sinners. The contemporary world, with its open wounds which affect so many of our brothers and sisters, demands that we confront every form of polarization which would divide it into these two camps. 

Politics is, instead, an expression of our compelling need to live as one, in order to build as one the greatest common good: that of a community which sacrifices particular interests in order to share, in justice and peace, its goods, its interests, its social life. 
I do not underestimate the difficulty that this involves, but I encourage you in this effort."

 Pope Francis's speech to Congress

Thank YOU
my Friend

I hope that more people hear (and heed) Pope Francis's words.

Wonderful post! Off to school early for an endless TA meeting. We had wee hour student protests that spilled out onto the freeway. One kid got hit by a car. I needed this, this morning. Life goes on, and humans are resilient, especially when we stick together.
