“It’s so hard to say goodbye to yesterday.” – Boyz to Men

“If you open your heart to patriotism then there is no room for prejudice” – President Donald J Trump, Inaugural address

As we start this new year, which has already been stained by violence across the globe, I would like to share with you this quote from the editors of Ornament magazine:

 

“We struggle with the terrible flaws that mark us as human, those imperfections that lead us to take destructive actions that could quench all life. Indeed, it was a rueful acknowledgment of the perils and glories of existence when Yugoslavian author Luis Adamic (1898 – 1951) wrote ‘My grandfather always said that living is like licking honey off a thorn.’

“The time is past when we can stand alone with our own close–knit communities and view the rest of the world as strangers, foreigners, others. The time is past when the world can be viewed as endlessly bountiful. This Earth is our only true treasure not the gold that lines our pocket. We are nature and we are part of an extraordinary universe. If there is transcendence to living it is our commonality with everything, ironic as that may be to some.” – Carolyn L. E. Benesh, Robert K. Liu, Postscript, Ornament, Volume 39 NO. 3
