On July 4th, we looked up to see this beautiful arc of multi-colored light crossing the sky. I’ve never seen such a powerful rainbow. One couldn’t but smile in awe, becoming filled with a sense of hope, power and joy. Yes, there are rainstorms and thunder, but there are also rainbows that inspire the imagination.
So, today I’m hoping you’ll take a pause for a few minutes. Perhaps listen to this song and open up to Imagine. Refuel. Release shadows and fears. Remember the power of love and connection.
And if you want another smile, a friend sent this video to me yesterday about our pets. As Rodney King said long ago, “can we all just get a long?” And, I’ll add, “can we all together do the easy, kind and smart things to protect our health, our communities and our citizens.”
In honor of July 4th, let us remember that We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men (and women) are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness (and often it takes our collaborative teamwork and thoughtful communication to make our dreams come true.)
