Peaceful Cooperation in the USA

Monday, January 13, 2020

Updated, Re-titled and Posted January 13, 2020.

Be the person who understands and forgives;
Be the person who has a nurturing heart;
Be the person who listens carefully to all viewpoints before judging;
Be the person others can trust, and most importantly -
inspires cooperation among others rather than conflict.

Start...
with a vision of a community that becomes more nurturing and stable as a result of many following your example;
with a vision of communities where the opportunity for all citizens to grow and prosper is not denied by the actions or non-action of the unwise;
with a positive vision of communities that will provide an educated and confident citizenship that has faith in the well being of of their children and grandchildren, and future generations to come.

Build upon this vision by...
reading stories of virtuous people who you admire, and noting their strengths and values that make them admirable and striving to make them your own;
ignoring the worldly impression that you as an individual are powerless to effect a positive change in your community or country;
acting with faith that participation in the election of politicians who best share your views, works for the benefit of all;
providing the example that will inspire other good citizens to do their part also;
and lastly by building upon your strengths so that by your efforts, everyone including you can prosper.

I wish all a success with all your goals especially with your goals within Sparkpeople.

NOTE: I consider myself an Independent, neither Democrat nor Republican. I know that others can disagree with my idea of what is virtuous, so do what you feel is right. I only ask that you be willing to challenge your own opinions by weighing opposing view points before you make the decision when the time is ripe. I consider views expressed on both CNN and FOX for the well being of my self education and feel this world will be a better place if others follow my example. It is your choice, but careful consideration before making a choice will make America better.

Thank you for considering this. I hope you enjoyed my sharing these thoughts.. Comments below or via Spark mail are welcome, With Love - Bob
