Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the great island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this cloudy, cold day here in Osterville, a day after the miracle that occurred yesterday in Tuscon, Arizona when Gabby Giffords, the most excellent congresswoman from that great state opened up her eyes with the President of the United States, Madame leader Pelosi, Gabby’s husband and some of her closest friends were present at her hospital bed. The miracle of this medical excellence combined with the prayers of people all over the world was not only heart breaking, in a good way, but forced us all to SEE the GOOD that this country still represents–now and forever. I was also struck by some of the right wing leaders who spoke out to the President’s most EXCELLENT speech at the Mchale center, a part of the University of Arizona, the wildcats, who proved once again what a fine institution of higher learning, it truly is, not to mention the GREAT work of the doctors, neurosurgeons at the University Medical center in that great, tight knit college town of roughly million people on the most southern edge of again, that great state. What was said, by even gentlemen whom I have disagreed with in the past, namely Roger Ailes and Rupert Murdoch, the leaders of FOX NEWS, proved that they too have a heart and do not necessarily need to be marked as villains, as it serves no real purpose other than to divide this country even further, for I too have been guilty of that and I now see it serves no real purpose in the long run. For that, I am truly grateful and it gives me hope for this country’s future, for deep down inside, we all REALIZE that we are truly all One–“ONE nation, under GOD, indivisible, with LIBERTY and JUSTICE for ALL.” With that, I humbly wish to submit a poem, by an author, who at this moment will be considered “unknown”, for I believe that it sums up what the words of a man who walked this earthly plane over 2011 years ago really MEANT. It is only an excerpt, however, in this light of this tragedy in Tuscon, perhaps it is appropriate at this juncture… and it goes something like this, and keep in mind, that whether or not you are a Muslim, a Catholic, a Protestant, an agnostic, Jewish, Hindu, a Buddhist, or an atheist, it may ring a bell for you somewhere deep down inside, for I know it did me. AND ACTION! “I have told you that I cannot receive from you, a gift which I have not already given. If it were not so, we would not be One. And the gift of union, of Oneness, is what I came to give. And so, God gives infinite Love, which IS himself, Out of a fullness that leaves no room, For needing anything in return. It is not possible for God, or for me, Or for anyone who understands Love, to sacrifice, for there is nothing to receive. Don’t you see? So God IS host to you. God is host to me. But, I am host to God. And I am host to you. Just as you are host to me. And we are host to all brothers and sisters, Who have walked this sojourn through space and time.” Unknown... My continued blessings and prayers from the shores of Cape Cod to Gabby, her continued recovery, to the families of the victims who are still grieving and to the rest of this nation, who will hopefully take this tragedy and see what GOOD can come out of it. Have a nice day folks. PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
