" Be the change you want to see"

With an open mind I often search history and find words that the wise have spoken in the past and find that they still apply today and will in all of our tomorrows.  Why reinvent the wheel when it is the same wheel that rolls from the past and into our future ?  Truly the wheels go round and round.

" It's the action, not the fruit of the action that is important. You have to do the right thing. It may not be in your power, may not be in your time, that there will be any fruit.  But that doesn't mean you stop doing the right thing. You may never know what results come from your action. But if you do nothing, there will be no results."

Mahandas Gandhi 1869-1948

In spite of our political differences and changes that history has made we remain the same.
We all live with the unrest at home and around the world. Where lives are used up fighting over land and territory that by the grace of God is only loaned to us, for our brief time on earth.  The discourse in the pursuit of power over Global control has lessened us as a whole. Our strengths could be better used for good in the world. Instead, our greed and lust for power takes from us the peace that we seek.

Well said, Olivia. Our seemingly eternal repetition of historical mistakes made by previously successful civilizations is not really promising, is it. We should be learning from previous mistakes and building upon successes. ~R
