Come and Sing People who make music together cannot be enemies; At least while the music lasts. We are friends forever when we sing together. The whole world is better when we sing So let’s sing forever, hold our hands together Make the whole world better, come andsing! Song by Wallace Hornady
And thoughts from Bill Bryson in “The Road to Little Dribbling”
“Why can’t we have the best public schools?
May I tell you what I would like to see? I would like to see a government that said, “We’re going to stop this preposterous obsession with economic grow at the cost of all else. Great economic success doesn’t produce national happiness. So were going to concentrate on just being lovely and pleasant and civilized. We’re going to have the best schools and hospitals, the most comfortable transportation, the liveliest arts, the most useful and well-stocked libraries, the grandest parks, and cleanest streets, the most enlightened social policies!”
As 2017 rolls out and 2018 rolls in, remember to set some environmental goals for the new year. As people of this planet earth we all should be aware of our warming climate, and how we are causing it! Yes, it is very cold in many places this new year, but it is the over all tend that our planet is warming, not just one or two events, that we need to worry about. Extreme weather events, warming and rising oceans, and drought should not be ignored. CNN has an easy list of things you can do. Read it here.
