Desiderata by Max Ehrmann

Desiderata

Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
and listen to others,
even the dull and the ignorant;
they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons,
they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain and bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs;
for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals;
and everywhere life is full of heroism.
Be yourself.
Especially, do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love;
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment
it is as perennial as the grass.
Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe,
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
Therefore be at peace with God,
whatever you conceive Him to be,
and whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.
With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful.
Strive to be happy.

Braddock mayor John Fetterman to run for US Senate.

Just saw it on KDKA news. I will provide a link as soon as one is available.

Oh sure.... no biggie. After all, he's a FB player!

Some think if he just does some "community outreach" to animal rescue agencies, he will be exonerated. (I thought he already did that with the HSUS.) It's obvious that Animal Rescue League wants no part of him!

"Just My Imagination"-- The Temptations:

Help? Under the Dome pre-empted by football. :(

Is there any place where I can watch it tonight? Thank you!

Even though Jeb is running a lousy campaign, I don't think the bushes will let him fizzle out.

I think they will rally every resource they have to get him the nomination. Poppy might be too frail at this stage, but I wouldn't count Babs and sneaky W out yet.

And I think sooner or later, trump will start to wear out his welcome. He is a novelty now, but his bragging and bravado aren't enough to go the distance when the serious voters start going to the polls.

(Fingers crossed on trump. )
