Be someone who ...

Saturday, July 27, 2019

Be someone who understands and forgives;
Be someone who has a nurturing heart;
Be someone who listens instead of judges;
Be someone people can count on, and most importantly by your example, are inspired to leave other people better off.

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 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.

Act upon this vision by...
reading stories of virtuous people who you admire, and note that their strengths and values that make them admirable can be made your own;
by ignoring the worldly impression that you as an individual are powerless to effect a positive change in your community or country, and act with faith that participation in the election of politicians who best share your views works to the benefit of all, and with faith that your example will inspire other good citizens to do their part also.

NOTE: I develop my own view of right and wrong and now consider myself an Independent, but I know that others can disagree with my idea of what is virtuous, so do what you feel is right based on your own feelings of what is right. It is your choice, I only ask that you be willing to challenge your own opinions by giving weight to opposing view points before you make the final 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.

I wish all a success and hope you enjoyed my sharing these thoughts. Thank you for reading my Blog. Comments below or via Spark mail are welcome, With Love - Bob
