Ripples #597: Cooling Down!
For our tribe of 27,045 busy people who share encouragement and gratitude.
Nov 1, 2010
Nothing is ever eaten as hot as it’s cooked.
-German Proverb, submitted by Dudley, Houston TX
“[This was not a rally] to suggest that times
are not hard and we have nothing to fear;
they are, and we do.
But we live in hard times, not end times,
and we can have animus and not be enemies.”
“Most Americans don’t live their lives solely as Democrats or Republicans
or conservatives or liberals. Most Americans live their lives as if they’re
just a little bit late for something they have to do. Often it’s something
they do not want to do, but they do it. Impossible things get done every day
that are only made possible by the little, reasonable compromises.”
-Jon Stewart, at the conclusion of this weekend’s “Rally to Restore Sanity”
I strive to keep Ripples to a 1-minute read,
so I’ll keep this brief:
It is okay to raise our voices, and
it is vital that we vote;
let’s wake up on Wednesday morning
and ensure that we’re ALL winners by
COOLING DOWN the rhetoric and
WARMING UP the teamwork.
