The Path of Common Purpose...

“Our government should work for us, not against us. It should help us, not hurt us. It should ensure opportunity not just for those with the most money and influence, but for every American who's willing to work.

That's the promise of America - the idea that we are responsible for ourselves, but that we also rise or fall as one nation; the fundamental belief that I am my brother's keeper; I am my sister's keeper.

Individual responsibility and mutual responsibility - that's the essence of America's promise.”

Barack Obama

"We don't accomplish anything in the world alone...whatever happens is the result of the whole tapestry of one's life and all the weaving's of individual threads from one to another that creates something."

Sandra Day O’Connor

For D.P....

Thank you for all that you have shared and given with commitment, truth, and an open heart.

The story and connections are to be continued...

Stay tuned...

A Gathering of Solitude

"Our disasters come from letting nothing live for itself,
from the longing we have to pull everything,
even friends,
into ourselves,
and let nothing alone."
