You who offer a kind word, lend a hand to help, champion the disenfranchised, accept the broken and wounded, offer compassion like water on a hot day, march to spread awareness, call for social justice, write to plea for fairness, fight for the health of the planet, protect the smalls, rescue the abused and forgotten and, without second thought, day after day, do small unseen acts of caring and generosity, you are the ones who are carrying our blue-green planet forward and I thank you.
Our world is at odds with itself. There are all sorts of power grabs, vested interests, lobbying for the greater dollar and forgetting — totally and completely forgetting — that we are all connected. Contentiousness, nastiness, dishonor, disrespect, fractiousness and abuses lead the way. It is disheartening. And, equally, it is terrifying.
Integrity is hard found. Pandora’s box has been jimmied open and it seems that all of the baser, less humanitarian instincts have slithered out and entwined themselves around us and make many of our collective heads spin in disbelief and dismay.
That said, even amidst the seeming irrationality, injustices and bizzareness of our spinning globe, there are good people, very good people like you. You care. You are willing to take action on behalf of the vulnerable and disenfranchised. You want justice. You are willing to help without looking for anything in return. You bring your integrity, compassion, caring and sense of social justice to the fore. You, my friend, are a superhero.
I know it’s been hard. You have been fighting the good fight. There are days when you are tired and weary. You don’t want to pick up the burdens, at least for a little bit. Yet, you continue to step forward and spread your light in your own inimitable way. You make your corner of the world a lot more humane and a little less scary. Your efforts are frequently unnoticed, but the effect and impact you make are considerable and catalytic in creating a chain of caring and compassion that goes beyond your understanding.
On behalf of the universe and our troubled world, thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. You are a brave heart and a hidden hero. You consistently increase the amplitude of light and work endlessly to defeat the darkness. Please know you are blessed and loved beyond measure.
