It's a day to celebrate.
For many reasons - but let's start with the obvious one: my landlords' oldest daughter is getting married today. I am going to iron (yes iron for heaven's sake!) my dress - one of three that I own - and I'm going to put on my dancing shoes and I am going to celebrate their love, hope and optimism - and celebrate the fact that I believe they have reason to be happy, hopeful and optimistic.
There may be a struggle ahead of us, but I believe it is one we are going to win. Oh yes, let me elaborate: by "we" I mean all of us - humankind.
I am celebrating this declaration document: http://www.facebook.com/note.php?note_id=176025459156945
because it shows what truth, beauty and justice we are capable of - and I believe this truth, beauty and justice will prevail.
Love will always triumph over evil.
I celebrate life - every breath is a celebration.
I celebrate that the length of day has increased today over yesterday and tomorrow will be another 46 seconds longer.
I celebrate the big things and the small things. I know and understand that I am blessed. And I am grateful.
