Hope and Integration...

“Year's end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us.”

Hal Borland

2008 has been an extraordinary year...

The most significant high light for me being that we, as a country, chose to believe in transformation and revolution. We chose humanity...we chose to believe the impossible was possible. We as a country and people, chose to create a better world through our actions and beliefs as American voters.'

We had the courage and wisdom to choose CHANGE, and to choose HOPE.

We have initiated new future pathways' for our children, grandchildren and great grandchildren...

May 2009 bring about the beginnings of long awaited change and rebirth. May we hold close the knowledge and lessons learned over time and maintain endurance as we rebuild and recreate the honor, integrity, and humanity of our nation.

The budding blossoms of hope and change are waiting to burst...Let's not only watch, but nurture and participate in their growth and strength...

"And if Hanukkah Harry is helping Santa, maybe that means that Christians and Jews, deep down, are pretty much the same. Maybe that's the true meaning of Chrismukkah!"

With the pose of the hand, we can already recognize the character and theatrics soon to take the stage!

Congratulations and love to all three of you...

It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.”
