Thoughts For The Coming Year
Soon this year will draw to a close and a new one will begin, a year of uncertainty and unease, as we contemplate the meaning of the sudden end of the Mayan calendar, and of the cryptic predictions of Nostradamus (feel that delicious shiver that hastens your pulse and dimples your willing flesh!) I don’t believe so much in the “end of the world” scenario as I do that a change is coming. It seems inevitable to me. Can you look at the world around you and disagree? (Please feel free to correct me if I’m wrong!)
Or perhaps you should just ignore me. I’m having “one of those days,” where I’m just not comfortable in my own skin. You know, that feeling of unease, crawling your nerves and making you want to go to “DEFCON 4,” with all resources mobilized. That sense of something going on, so far above my pay grade that I’ll never hear of it or know, but I can feel it, and I think that you can, too. What we don’t know can hurt us, and we must learn to think of the people of our planet, not just our country, as us, because there may come a time, and soon, when all we have will be each other.
Be watchful and alert, but allow fear no foothold in your defenses, for it shorts out one’s intelligence and makes for decisions that are often unwise. Trust your instincts, for you ignore them at your own peril.
We must rediscover, in ourselves and in each other, the spirit Americans have always had, which has made us a people who are proud, brave and free, and where each citizen is the equal of the next.
If going beyond the ordinary is what we must do, then let us show the rest of the world the way, and let us begin today.
