I honour the fallen from every battle, in every land and from every moment in history.
I reflect on their courage and dedication.
I consider each and every a departed member of my human family.
In the United States this is Memorial Day, a day for remembering and honouring the fallen soldiers, sailors, guards and airmen of the military. It is a day for setting aside politics, opinions, and personal beliefs in order to honour bravery, sacrifice, and dedication. It is not a day about causes, it is a day about commitment and conviction. Let us remember those troubadours of courage who are forever our brothers and sisters, our sons and daughters, grandparents, parents, wives and husbands and children…each someone’s child. Hold them all in our love.
And this Memorial Day as we honour the memory of the fallen, let’s add to our recognition those who survived the battlefield, but not the war. Many of those who come home, never do. Please think of those who still fly missions over Germany, forever climb the hills of Korea, sleep every night in the jungles of Vietnam, and continue to hide in the sands of the Middle East. Hold them all in our love.

I respect the choices of others and ask the same of them.
I walk the path to wholeness that is right for me.
There are as many spiritual paths as there are travelers. No singular way can be right for every person- each heart and every soul are in search of their own unique home. Buddhism, Judaism, Muslim, Shinto, Gnosticism, New Age Spirituality, Wicca, and the thousands of other paths to wholeness, each hold merit for the one who has chosen it. It is important to follow the road (or roads) that meet the needs of your inner being, regardless of the opinions of others. It is equally important that we ask that our choices be respected. And, just as we ourselves ask for respect, so too must we respect the way of others. On this day, as many choose to honor one of the world’s great teachers-Yeshua ben Joseph /Jesus- we can appreciate his messages of loving respect and tolerance “Judge not, that you be not judged.” (Matthew 7:1). And, “And as you would have that men should treat you, treat them likewise.” (Luke 6:31). And, “Love your neighbor as yourself.” (Matthew 22:39)
