I just received a beacon from the past. Last night I opened a trove of photos and came across a letter to my grandmother, from her best friend, dated October 13, 1944…when the world was at war…and her children and her friends’ children were fighting overseas.
It seems each new day now we must be conditioned for the unpredictable challenges thrust upon us – and as long as the abnormal remains the norm for now, we must bravely carry on, but God!, what a blessing when all this will end and we can once again descry the arc of peace across untroubled Heaven – please let it be for all our kids’ sake!
Keep well – keep all your chins up – much love –
Attempting to heed the wise words of Edith, keeping all my chins up, and getting involved. There’s a link at the end of the post if you’d like to do the same.
Representatives of American cities, states and companies are preparing to submit a plan to the United Nations pledging to meet the United States’ greenhouse gas emissions targets under the Paris climate accord, despite President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the agreement.
“The President has already said climate change is a hoax, which is the exact opposite of virtually all scientific and worldwide opinion. I don’t believe fighting reality is a good strategy – not for America, not for anybody. If the President is going to be AWOL in this profoundly important human endeavor, then California and other states will step up.” Governor Edmund G. Brown, California
“Climate change is a fact of life that people in Los Angeles and cities around the world live with every day. It is a grave threat to our health, our environment, and our economy — and it is not debatable or negotiable. This is an urgent challenge, and it’s much bigger than one person. With the President pulling out of the Paris Climate Agreement, L.A. will lead by committing to the goals of the accord — and will work closely with cities across America and the world to do the same.” Mayor Garcetti, Los Angeles
