Happy Beginning of the Week!
As we head into this week to create the future of our world, we all know it’s not always easy. The thing that gets us through the rough patches, though, can be defined in one word: Love.
I am fortunate. I am surrounded by people who love me. They are my friends, my family, my support, my rock. When I am unsteady, they are strong. What would we do without love such as this in our lives?
That is why the images in this week’s Rock Out are haunting. As we face the a world so hell-bent on making life hard, who could possibly be against love?
I love the love in this video. I am saddened by the love in this video. I am inspired and mortified. And I cannot watch this without thinking of the eloquence with which Keith Olbermann stepped out of his normal dragon-under-the-stairs persona to ask that same question: Who could possibly be against love?
Pollyanna Principle #3 states that “Everyone and everything is interconnected and interdependent, whether we acknowledge that or not.” That connection is so much a part of who we are that when we see a cactus pad shaped like a heart, we stop, grab a friend’s arm, pointing and smiling.
We need each other.
As you head out to do your work this week, embrace anyone who cares about the same thing you care about. Link arms. Create a movement. Make things happen.
The Beatles were right. Love is all we need. So please, get out there and love each other.
Have a great Monday and a great week, all!
