It was quite a weekend as the 41st President of the United States passed away. As America remembers him with a National Remembrance Service and a Day of Morning on Wednesday, I joined in this--especially as I remembered what he did with the American With Disabilities Act and some of the other key milestones he achieved. Yes, he had flaws and he made mistakes--but what I picked up ((Which our team at the Daily Outsider will feature during a retrospective in the ordinary Faces property on Wednesday), captured it all in light of the challenging time we face with now.
I had the good fortune over the weekend to be witness to the Christmas tree lighting ceremony at my hometown City Hall over the Week-End. It was great to be witness to it as our community also celebrated the advent of Hanukkah as well late Sunday--which unfortunately I could not attend due to pressing commitments . What I picked up from PeaceNow was beautiful:
We Came to Drive Away the Darkness! A festival of light & hope, Happy Hanukkah!
It is the end about a sense of hope as the Holiday Season celebrating all the cherished traditions of the World . But I could not help but wonder about these beautiful souls who would not celebrate the holidays with their loved ones, all who are away from their loved ones during these times especially:
Our World is better because such courageous souls step up to make a difference--As I salute Time Magazine for insuring that we never forget.
Onward to this Holiday Month & remaining excited about our World in spite of the profound challenges....
