A Call For Kindness

 

kindness 1

“As America figures this all out, I’ll be holding doors for strangers, letting people cut in front of me in traffic, saying good morning, being patient with sales clerks, and smiling at pedestrians as often as I am provided the opportunity. Because I will not stand idly by and live in a world where unconditional love is invisible. Join me in showing love to someone who may not necessarily deserve it, but who needs it. Find your own way to swing the pendulum in the direction of love. Be kind to a stranger today and every day.”

I did not write the above statement. (Wish I did!) It was copied from a friend who copied it from someone else, who copied from someone else. You are welcome to pass it on to all your social media or wherever. Copy and add your town at the bottom.  It will be like an anonymous chain letter for peace!  No risk, no spam, just tell the world WE THE PEOPLE, plan to act in kindness.

New Year’s Day/ U2

 

new-year-4

Hard to believe it has been thirty-three years since Bono & company penned this song for their 1983 album ‘War’.  Although it was originally written for Lech Walesa and the Polish Solidarity movement, I find a lot of relevance in this song as applied to the issues of today.

I have always loved U2.  Once upon a time several years ago I was lucky enough to meet Bono and The Edge at a loading dock in Chicago. They struck me as kind and considerate gentlemen.

Hope you are having a fantastic New Year’s Day!

 

 

Happy Xmas by John Lennon

 

xmas-4

Today, December 8th, marks the 36th anniversary of the death of John Lennon.  A man who strove for peace, both in his personal life and world wide, he ironically died a violent death by gunshot.

John taught us that instead of protesting  war we should try to live our daily lives in peace, celebrate peace and even advertise peace!   His vision of world peace was never far from his heart. I am posting this video in honor of John Lennon and U.S. Troops everywhere, with hopes that my government, the United States of America, will END its GREEDY AND INSANE  war mongering.

Imagine Peace. Pray for Peace. Live in Peace.

Blessed Be 🙂
