God grant me the Serenity
to accept the things
I cannot change,
to change the things
I can, and
the Wisdom to know
I've decided in the hope of maintaining sanity and some peace, I will take the following measures:
I am "Ground Zero". I will be cognizant of the needs of others; purposefully instigating kindness and compassion wherever I can and will eschew recognition for such. In other words, doing good for the Heaven of it. All it takes is one light; one person.
I will ignore all mention of things political -- namely anything involving the candidate for the next four years. Any mention of that man's name, or that of his family, will be blocked. Kind of like Voldemort in Harry Potter -- "He who must not be named". His name, antics, family will not be spoken of in this house. He is anathema to me.
I will work quietly and definitely for the greater good, supporting those individuals and agencies that provide relief and quality of life for others both nationally and worldwide.
I will pray for our evolution from this myopic, ego-centered, hypocritical, and ignorant society to one that recognizes goodness, decency, and worth in all of us.
