No Man Is An Island

Human's don't thrive when isolated from one another. "No man is an island, entire of itself, each is a part of the continent, a part of the main."  This particular quote John Donne (1572-1631), seems to me to be as powerful a quote as "The golden rule." Both resonating the idea that we would be much better off if we would just get to know one another, love as we want to be loved, and begin to accept one another as equals. Sounds so easy doesn't it? Seems like something we are already doing, but most of us are not. I believe if this were true, we would have eliminated most of the insurmountable problems plaguing this great nation today.

"Isolation is not a good destination." When we isolate ourselves from one another, we miss the true joy of life that only bonding and lasting human relationships can provide.What we need are bridges leading us from the isolation of our personal island, to the strong, secure,and connected ground upon which we can rebuild a strong republic.We must concede this notion that we can continue to survive without one another; this is not working and it never will.

When our ancestors arrived here they were armed with the idea that in order to survive, they needed to become one. They looked out for one another enduring hardships even they never could have imagined. They realized the importance of strength in numbers. We have the numbers, we just have to get our strength back and pick up the ball we dropped.

In America today we need to look in one another's eyes, put a smile on our faces, open doors and build bridges together that will lead us down the road to true peace and prosperity. We must engage ourselves into becoming a united one, showing the world what our ancestors already knew, it takes peaceful people to create a peaceful nation.

Peace out America.
