“On America’s team,
let’s not choose to be against one another.
Let’s choose to be for one another.
My great-great-great grandfather had no choice.
We have one.
I pray we dedicate ourselves
to being the best team we can be,
working and living together,
representing the highest ideals of mankind.
Leading the way for all nations to follow.”
~ LaDainian Tomlinson more
“The best exercise for the human heart
is reaching down to lift someone else up.”
~ Tim Russert more
“To ignore the welfare of others
is to place ourselves out of harmony with human life.
And we can gain nothing of value from life
when we are at variance with human life,
because we are all dependent upon each other
for what we receive in this world.”
~ Christian D. Larson more
“To be fully human is to be wild.
Wild is the strange pull and whispering wisdom.
It’s the gentle nudge and the forceful ache.
It is your truth, passed down from the ancients,
and the very stream of life in your blood.
Wild is the soul where passion and creativity reside,
and the quickening of your heart.
Wild is what is real,
and wild is your home.”
~ Victoria Erickson more
“For, in the final analysis,
our most basic common link
is that we all inhabit this small planet.
We all breathe the same air.
We all cherish our children’s future.
And we are all mortal.”
~ John F. Kennedy
“Sooner or later all the people of the world
will have to discover a way to live together in peace,
and thereby transform this pending cosmic elegy
into a creative psalm of brotherhood.”
~ Martin Luther King, Jr
“May your light rest in our hearts,
And remind us that you are the eternal star.”
“Let us dream of a world without any more violence –
A world of justice and hope.
Let us each give a hand to our neighbor…
As a symbol of peace and brotherhood.”
“Give us strength.
Fill us with love that we might love and be loved.
Let this be our prayer.”
~ Carol Bayer Sager and David Foster
