This is a platform for sharing some of what I do and think. As I build on what I've learned and experienced, I am attempting to form something new, something better, and hopefully something useful to others.
I am always striving to refine my approach to life, recognizing that I have much to learn and so many possible ways to travel. Below is a simple adaptation of the United Farm Workers' Prayer I adapted. It helps refocus me on what is important and how I want to be. See the video as well for background on Cesar Chavez and the origins of these words.
Show us the suffering of the most miserable, so we may know the people’s plight.
Grant us courage, honesty, and patience to care for others and to take responsibility for our own lives.
Bring forth song and celebration for a spirit to flourish among us so that we will never tire of the struggle.
Let us remember those who have died, for they have given us life.
Help us love even those who hate us, so we can change the world.
