Saturday salutations

1 Comment

A gloomy start to the day but some sunshine came in and rescued the day. I need to get out of the house a bit, even if it is to cut the grass or work outside. But those duties will be put off till tomorrow. I’ve got some indoor task to finish up first.

Time will free us.

I was glad I took the time to watch the One World: Together At Home show on this evening. It was a celebration of all the people going above and beyond for the rest of us each day of our lives. What they (our healthcare workers and those keeping essential services running) are doing and being asked to do during this crisis is beyond what heroes are asked.

I made me ask of myself what more could I do to contribute to the causes of those many people stepping up and those far less fortunate than ourselves. This is something I’m going to try to remember at the forefront of every day to come.

I didn’t see the Fox channel joining in this celebration. I guess their thoughts on being a Global Citizen or celebrating those giving to much aren’t in line with what they will soon learn is the majority of this country. I can imagine with the negative image painted by them of the World Health Organization that even if some tuned in by accident they switched channels back to their home trashing everyone whose name isn’t Trump.

But back to what I can do today. As soon as this show is over I’m going to get up and make a few donations. And of course I’m staying home. That is the least I can do for others.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • I was hoping everyone realized the importance of small businesses but this event made me realize that we still don’t know that.
  • I refuse to watch one more minute of those briefings from the White House.
  • Had a great meal from Bare Bones this evening. Thanks for the reminder Kathy.
