I'm going to a 90th birthday party this morning and this came to me from Susan and thought it would go good for today:
Senior citizens are constantly being criticized for every conceivable deficiency of the modern world, real or imaginary. We know we take responsibility for all we have done and do not blame others.
HOWEVER, upon reflection, we would like to point out that it was NOT the senior citizens who took:
The melody out of music,
The pride out of appearance,
The courtesy out of driving,
The romance out of love,
The commitment out of marriage,
The responsibility out of parenthood,
The togetherness out of the family,
The learning out of education,
The service out of patriotism,
The Golden Rule from rulers,
The nativity scene out of cities,
The civility out of behavior,
The refinement out of language,
The dedication out of employment,
The prudence out of spending,
The ambition out of achievement or
God out of government and school.
"Our world is incomplete
until each of us discovers
what moves us--our passion.
No other person can hear our calling.
We must listen and act on it for ourselves.
To hear it, we need a positive environment
that supports deep listening and truth telling."
~ Richard J. Leider
Well, I hope you all have a great day and enjoy it - no matter what.
