It's the Power of All, Not One

{ 7 } sky Responsibility does not only lie with the leaders of our countries or with those who have been appointed or elected to do particular job. It lies with each of us individually.
Peace, for example, starts within each one of us.
When we have inner peace, we can be at peace with those around us.
-Dalai Lama
God, helps those that help themselves. -Ben Franklin
It's inaugural day in the US and most are watching the traditions and historical significance surrounding a day like today. A day of jubilation for our African American friends and rejuvenation for our Democrat brothers and sisters. Thousands are relying on our newly elected leaders for all the answers. However, we ultimately have the power to clean up our mess.

  6. Very true indeed that each of us has a responsibility to hold; as long as we do not understand this, we are disempowered to act.

    Pardon me, I have used this photo of yours in my Facebook page 'Symphony of Love' to go with a quote by Dalai Lama.
