Would you agree that the greatest gift that you have ever received is the gift of life? It is an amazing and miraculous manifestation of a greater being than we are. It is a revelation that to say the least is awe inspiring. That we arrive out of love and sometimes hate should have no bearing on who or what we will become. God has given us free will and relies on us to do the moral and ethical thing. The path we choose is up to us and can be the greatest cause of happiness or unhappiness. It is in dealing with the many problems that beset us all that we can arrive at the meaning of life. Sadly and unfortunately we sometimes lay blame on “them” instead of “us.”
What can I do to better my adversity? How can I elevate my being to the ultimate? I have admired through the ages the magnificence of famous figures but we need look no further than our own community to see the living heroes in our midst. They have taken the life given to them and brought it to the highest state of excellence that is humanly possible. They have been modeled and shaped by their experiences and the experience of others. Their gift is evident to all. They appreciate the gift of life.
Stand up and be counted.
