SOAPBOX of the week: the hummmmm of humanity

“Are we not formed, as notes of music are, for one another, though dissimilar?”     ~ Percy Bysshe Shelley, poet

Forever we’ve heard the echoing plea…WHY CAN’T WE ALL JUST GET ALONG? …urging us to examine our separate-but-equally responsible roles in society’s rampant, ruckus-like cacophony.  Yet it’s still like pulling teeth to purposefully set our differences aside in hopes of chiming a groove that might just mollify the masses.  Perhaps confounded technology compromises our communication skills; perhaps Gen X, Y, Z and Pi haven’t been taught just how to name that tune in four notes.  And perhaps, we are just looking for excuses, folks.  Peace is a gift we can (and should) share with one another…whatever age, color, nationality, educational reach, religious path or financial strata we tattoo on our skin.  But for all to benefit, we must want harmony; want our individual notes to jive together; want to create more than just a temporal little ditty.  And it starts with you.  So, acknowledge the beauty and idiosyncrasy of yourself as an essential note in the symphony of the planet.  Work to weave a never-ending opus that has the power to last beyond your lifetime…and crank up the tunes you’ve helped create.
