A Moment of Contemplation

On this day of awe for kids, soberness and thoughtfulness for adults and inspired belief for the Christian world, I sit and wonder.

Why must we limit this display of joy, love and generosity for our brothers and fellow creatures to one day a year? If it exists within us for one day, then surely we can summon our better selves to serve us throughout the year.

My daughter said it best: "what is there is gratitude. Gratitude for this season when for a few moments a huge population of the planet turns their attention to love, peace, healing and hope. It doesn’t last long, and it doesn’t happen for everyone. But it does happen which means it exists as a way of being for all of us all the time."

Peace to all and to all a good day.
