Time on Tuesday....

I'm continuing to read through the book I quoted yesterday, The World According to Mister Rogers, written by Fred Rogers.

Today's quote:  "We want to raise our children so that they can take a sense of pleasure in both their own heritage and the diversity of others."

I think this is vital for the world in which we live.

Monday's Musings....

From The World According to Mister Rogers, a gift from a dear friend, are these words....
    "As human beings, our job in life is to help people realize how rare and valuable each one of us
     really is, that each of us has something that no one else has - or ever will have - something inside
     that is  unique to all time. It's our job to encourage each other to discover that uniqueness and to
     provide ways of developing its expression."

Words for Wednesday....

On November 19, 1863, Abraham Lincoln delivered a speech that is known as the Gettysburg Address.  Following are some excerpts from that speech....

    "Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal."

    "....we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain - that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom - and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."

What inspiration!!

For Tuesday....

In 1883, American poet Emma Lazarus wrote "The New Colossus." Following are some of the words from that poem....

      "Give me your tired, your poor, 
       Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
       The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
       Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me.
       I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

These words are inscribed on a bronze plaque placed in the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty. 

Words for thought for today.

Monday's message.....

.....is about a safety pin.  Do you have one somewhere?  This may be a use you might consider for it.

There are those among us in our nation just now who are feeling threatened and vulnerable - more so than they usually feel.  I am joining with the Safety Pin America movement by wearing a safety pin on my clothing each day.  This indicates that anyone who is feeling threatened will be able to feel safe with me.
