A Daily "Thought"

A "Mid Week" Thought 4 the Week on Our World :-)

It has been another challenging week in the United States.    But, there are always hopeful signs.  I commented on some of the latest from Iran in Outsider Views when I noted about recent hopeful signs in Iran.    It was also a disappointment, though, to see how the latest massacre in Washington did not move Congress to at least look at how to control the proflieration of guns in America.   I was so gratified by the courage of Howard Schultz, the Starbucks CEO, when he wrote an open letters to customers asking that they do not bring guns to Starbucks stores where such actions was allowed.  This is as I saw a study in the American Journal of Medicine about the debunking of the myth pushed by National Rifle Assocation  on how more guns makes America Safe.    I did have a good laugh when I heard the US Speaker of the House noted how he spoke for the American Family.  

The need to be hopeful and optimsitic is at times, challenging.   The need to find a sense of joy in life and reflect upon it and ba thankful for it should be key.  This simple clip I ran across underscores it--and we must always remember: :

Finding Joy Movie: Helen Keller said, "The best and most beautifiul things in life cannot be seen, not touched, but are felt in the heart." Some of the most beautiful things in life are also the most simplistic.

Onward :-)
