Rise Up Together

A L O H A From Honolulu!

The scariest demons
of darkest night,
fade in the glory
of morning's good light.

We are made to rise,
to soar, born to
reach for stars, to
share the sky before us.
So let us rise together

With hearts full of love,
Show the world
what we're made of.
A nation of dreamers,
A nation of hope,
Together we can overcome.
So let us rise together.

Make our voices heard,
Sing but do not shout
Stand in the light
Resilient people,
Our nation of hope,
Together we prevail.

We can be serene
even in the midst of
calamities and, by our
serenity, make others
more tranquil.
Swami Satchidananda


Love You,
Pixie & Cloudia

It is funny how everything is better when it is daylight. We also agree that if you maintain calm, it spreads and others become more calm as well.
