To All,



I hope that everyone has a Happy and Healthy New Year. Hopefully we have learned from the past and use what we have learned as the New Year starts.



Some words of wisdom to help us along









For our Politicians



Genuine politics -- even politics worthy of the name -- the only politics I am willing to devote myself to -- is simply a matter of serving those around us: serving the community and serving those who will come after us. Its deepest roots are moral because it is a responsibility expressed through action, to and for the whole.

Vaclav Havel



For Our Children

All who have meditated on the art of governing mankind have been convinced that the fate of empires depends on the education of youth.

Aristotle



For Our Elected Officials

Some people make headlines while others make history

Philip Elmer-DeWitt



For My Friends

When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving much advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a gentle and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.

Henri Nouwen



The death of democracy is not likely to be an assassination from ambush. It will be a slow extinction from apathy, indifference, and undernourishment.

Robert M. Hutchins
