For A Single Moment We Forgot Hate

On August 21, 2017 something amazing happened. 

 Most of you are probably aware that there was a phenomena in the sky called a sloar eclipse.  The solar eclipse encapsulated the United States of America and the world for a few shinning moments. 

When I saw this meme on Facebook posted by Damien Von Dunn I knew it spoke volumes.  

Frederick R Barnard first wrote the phrase, ” One look is worth a thousand words“, in Printer’s Ink, December 1921.”

 If one look is worth a thousand words then I found a picture worth a million.

Where were you during the solar eclipse?

Many people traveled across the country to catch a glimpse of totality while other’s stayed home, went to work or school.   

Where was I?   I was at work in my office.  However one of my colleges brought in a pair of glasses to share with anyone who wanted to take a peek.   If you missed it click this link to see NASA’s Solar Eclipse Photos.  

And for a single moment, our nation stopped, and looked up at the sky and forgot about hate

Lately I’ve been ashamed of the ugliness, hatred and bigotry gripping the United States of America.   What has happened to getting along with each other? Settling our differences in a calm and collective manner?  

I’m not going to get on a soapbox here, however I am disgusted at the actions some people choose to participate in this past weekend. 

Can we just all get along?

Where is the love?

Has love escaped us?  Has common sense left the world? Every man, women and child should be reaching deep into their hearts, finding the love, pulling it out and spreading it around.  

Enough with wars, violence and hate.   Waylon Jennings said it best when he sang “Let’s get back to the basics of love”.

So another eclipse has come and gone.  The world stood silent in amazement for just a few moments in time forgetting all it’s cares and worries to bring peace.  I wonder when soldiers are fighting in war and on Christmas Eve if at one point they stop everything and listen for the peace?

I hope you found this inspiring and as always I welcome your feedback.
