“It does not harm just once in awhile to acknowledge that the whole country isn’t in flames, that there are people in this country besides politicians, entertainers, and criminals.” Charles Kuralt
Looking at the theme today for A Season for Peace and Non-Violence, which is ‘Acknowledgment‘ I found this quote by Charles Kuralt and felt it was perfect for me to share. While learning patience in my search for a home base (which may end up mobile) and work, I spend my time sitting in coffee shops observing, writing, and meeting the most interesting people.
Beautiful, kind, interesting people are everywhere and if I spent less time observing and talking, I’d be writing about all of them. There are plenty out there and I know from those who have emailed me, called me, and even stopped me in the grocery store – that it’s good to acknowledge at least a few by writing about them on my blog. I will not get to writing about them all, but dedicate time to those who touch my heart in ways that push me to write about them, their mission, and their path.
Day 33 of 64 Days of Non-Violence: Acknowledgment
Tell someone today what a difference he or she has made in your life. Acknowledge that person for being there for you. Make this a day when you don’t take people for granted.
Sit, listen, and enjoy this video of Acknowledgement by John Coltrane and think about who you should acknowledge today. It may be yourself, just for being here,in This Thing Called Life.
