The Beauty of Life

My "year of the rainbow' has started a bit "tough".    I remain ever more hopeful as I saw Tavis Smiley' conversation about Poverty in America.    I remain hopeful because of the move to finally bring some sense to the culture of violence that is our society right now.   One of my students shared this from Mother Theresa which goes to the heart of Ethical Living and how we must all remember it.     There is a lot to indeed be thankful for:


“Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it.”
- Mother Teresa
