What can I say that has not already been said? THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART! It is truly remarkable to see what a community of people can do when they come together around the same dream – Constant, Everlasting, PEACE. I watched the sun rise from Big Red while snuggled up under the 7th Ave. Dream Blanket. A perfect way to end a perfectly magical day.
This dream is now reality and I am overjoyed to be a part of it. I’ll leave you with a piece from the poem I read at Friday’s Ground Zero Ceremony….
“The best thing you can do for the future is to live with everything you have in the present. Right now you are in a position to create real, lasting, positive value for the world in which you live. How do you do that? By following your heart. By being the you that is really you. You may have wandered away from yourself….now is the time to come home.
You know in your heart you are here for a reason. The pain you feel is that purpose, that reason for living, as it constantly aches to break free. And when it does, you will be more alive then you ever could have imagined.
Breathe in the beauty around you, the beauty and richness of being alive. It is your gift, it is your fortune, it is your blessing. And it is your to live, to experience, to fulfill.
