Quote of the Day
"Our happiness depends on the habit of mind we cultivate. So practice happy thinking every day. Cultivate the merry heart, develop the happiness habit, and life will become a continual feast.”
-Norman Vincent Peale

A Dose of Poetry
Love, love, we all need love. If we have love
then we can be as light as a dove.

Love is always in our hearts, it was there
right from the start.

I forgive others, oh yes I do, I hope you do
the right thing and forgive others too.

If we love others and never let anyone feel
alone, then wherever you are will feel like
home.

I care about others and love to share. If you
do the same then everyone will know that
you care.

If we choose love and be bold, then our
hearts will never grow cold.

In this video, Waianae High School ALC (Alternative Learning Center) presents Choose Love at the HI State Capitol in Jan. 2020. This is a high-risk group that faces many challenges from substance abuse, mob fights, foster care and some are even homeless. But, as our Choose Aloha Ambassador in Hawaii remarks,
"CHOOSE LOVE BRINGS HOPE & HEALING & WHOLENESS!" This testimony was given before the most powerful Ways & Means Committee in an appeal for more funding for the proven effect of ALC & Social and Emotional Learning.
Call to Action
WORLD LISTENING DAY is this Sunday. This day, established in 2010, is hosted annually by The World Listening Project, a nonprofit devoted to "understanding the world and its natural environment, societies, and cultures through the practice of listening and field recording.” This year's theme is "The Unquiet Earth." This organization explores acoustic ecology, a discipline that studies the relationship between humans and the natural world as mediated through sound. So take some time today to be still and just listen to the sounds around you. Find appreciation for the beauty encompassing you and actively listen.
