Global Health

For Pondering:

Along with most people, I am grateful for the medical science that created the Covid 19 vaccination which is allowing us to return to some sense of normalcy in the United States. And… that is a privilege most of the world has yet to realize. We are a global community with a common future and we depend on the health of one another. In our privilege we must not lose sight of the suffering of others.

Epitaph

For Pondering:

“And so he passed over and all the trumpets sounded for him on the other side”
Epitaph for RAF pilot officer Sir Christopher Albert de Bathe, killed on active service 3 June 1941. 

Today we remember so many who have “passed over” in war and armed conflict with deep gratitude, as well as regret that we have not found a more peaceful way to solve conflict.

Need a Mother

For Pondering:

My favorite line from the movie Hook occurs when Hook tells Peter to come back and fight him, and little Maggie Banning tells Hook, “You need a mother very, very badly.” This Mother’s Day we celebrate all those loving, nurturing adults who have poured themselves into our lives. It is true, we need them “very, very badly.”

May Pole

For Pondering:

The May Pole originated from the Germanic pagan tradition as a way to celebrate the return of summer and new vegetation. It was cause for the town to gather and dance! Find something today worth celebrating and break into dance.

Cherry Blossoms

For Pondering:

In 1912, 3020 cherry trees were planted around the tidal basin in Washington, DC as a symbol of growing friendship between the two countries. From the Buddist tradition, the symbolic meaning of the cherry blossom is associated with clouds and a reminder of the “transience of all things.”
