And so we come to the last day of the year 2012. It’s been a long hard year for pretty much everyone on the planet, much less in the USA. A number of really good people have left this physical earthly realm. We’ll truly miss them and their wisdom. But, as a wise American Indian once said, death is but a change of worlds.
The writer of this essay column would like to thank the few of you who decided to read and follow this column for the past year. It has been very much appreciated. Many thanks as well to the examiner.com website and staff for the venue to publish. Good luck to all of you and best wishes in the year 2013. Let us all pray that we finally learn the lesson of how to live with each other as human beings on the same planet, peacefully and with tolerance. A wise person once said that stupidity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. Maybe someday soon, those who insist upon repeating the same actions of violence over and over again will suddenly realize that it’s not the answer, and that it will never be the answer. Maybe we’ll all start caring about each other again, like we used to, even as we go about our mundane, everyday activities. A word of encouragement goes a long way.
Heartfelt wishes go out to every soul on planet Earth, that we might finally find inner peace within and realize that we are all, yes all, connected, and that every single one of us matters.
