7/31/16 RMB One for All

7/31/16 RMB One for All

Dear Rita Mae Brown,

What guides us, what draws us forward, holds common ground. Each wants something more, something better, a better tomorrow, a better place to be.

Where we differ lay in the details. The definition of “better” varies person to person and day to day. Often forgotten is that better for one, at the expense of another, is at a cost greater than any gain. Better for all at the willing sacrifice of some, will reap unlimited rewards. What is sacrificed will be replenished tenfold. Finding the place of better for all, is an art we have yet to master, or refuse to see.

What we devote our time to now will return in a measure beyond imagination. When the heart stops beating, the spirit carries on. No physical possessions, nor piece of land, will journey on with us. Yet every smile, given and received, every ounce of gratitude, the effects of all our endeavors, will linger, here and wherever we may go.  

During this presidential election, in the handling of global strife, and discrimination, our actions define us. It is not the loudest or most obnoxious voice that influences the majority. A silent vote from the heart can sway a nation. Kind deeds will be paid forward instinctively.
All for one and one for all. Every person for all people, each time for all time, generation to generation. It’s within reach.
