Giving Thanks To Our Service Men and Women
Today is a day of remembrance here in the United States. It is a day we honor the service men and women who made the supreme sacrifice in order for us to live freely in this amazing country of ours.
I am deeply grateful for their service.
I have also come to realize that the highest form of appreciation for their ultimate sacrifice is to do my part in creating a world where this kind of sacrifice is no longer necessary.
John Lennon put it so beautifully in his immortal song, Imagine.
Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion, too
“Imagine all the people living life in peace.”
He goes on to say,
“You may say I am dreamer,
But I am not the only one.
I hope someday you will join me
And the world will be as one.”
As I share with my clients and with you, if we can see it, we can achieve it, no matter how far out of reach it is.
I invite you to imagine what peace would look and feel like in our world.
For me it is a world of compassion, awareness and deep concern for the well-being of one another.
Peace starts right where we are. Peace starts with each one of us being at peace in our beings. It starts with our individual ability to be present for the people around us seeing the best in them. It starts with our ability to hear the viewpoints of those we don’t agree with and see their perspective, hearing their pain and acknowledging their needs.
World peace is a tall order and yet, I believe from the bottom of my heart, it is obtainable.
And as the Peace Song goes,
“Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me.”
Join me today giving deep thanks to our amazing men and women of service and their families, for the sacrifice they have made.
Then join me in being a dreamer, as we each do our part in creating the world that John Lennon painted for all of us. A world where we live as one.
Here’s to honor and peace,
