Saint Andrew’s of Hyannis Port

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 8:48 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the foggy island of Nantucket!  Great to be back with you on this Monday morning, the twenty-second day of August, 2011, a calm, warm start to the day here in Osterville, the tiny, tiny seaside village only a mere football toss away from Hyannis Port, as seen above, home to OUR thirty-fifth President of the United States of America, Mr. Jack Kennedy, along with his beautiful wife Jackie and the rest of that extraordinary family that showed US all the way in putting their fellow man first, above, in many ways, their own personal needs.  I was on the fabled island of Martha’s Vineyard for the past few days, visiting one of my favorite places on planet earth at the same time our current President, Barack Obama was, and still is for the next week or so, vacationing with his family–a well deserved vacation that every leader deserves to recharge his or her batteries…  The trip included a stop in Edgartown, on the eastern shore of that amazing island, a place I called home for a summer after graduating from the University of Vermont. The weather was spectacular, as were the fireworks that lit up the night sky on Friday night in the little town of Oak Bluffs, with the famous ‘gingerbread’ houses all a glow in the mid-summer night air.  As the President deals with the nation’s ills, perhaps WE can all take a step back and look at our problems in the country as mostly of our own making, therefore, can be solved through our collective cooperation and attention to what is RIGHT and what is most clearly wrong.  I think we all know what that means.  And as the nation of Libya, at this early morning hour, begins to retake it’s country back from the brutal dictatorship that was Moammar Ghadafy, perhaps we too can look to our own plight as a country and realize just how important it is to take care of our own people once again, for there are millions of our fellow citizens right here in the U.S. now well under the poverty line, with one in five children falling victim to a system they had nothing to do in setting up.  There is plenty of money, it’s just how WE spend it that really matters in the end.  I pray you have a good week and please, should you so desire, say a little prayer for the 3.5 million refugees still pouring over the Kenyan border from Somalia, where a devastating drought has caused wide spread famine, creating one of the greatest humanitarian crisis’ in modern day history.  Should you wish to help, please dial into savethechildren.org or care.org and donate what you can to a very worthy cause.  Thank you. See you tomorrow, same bat ‘time’, same bat station.  PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
