Sometimes we’re right and sometimes we can be wrong
The butcher, the banker, the drummer and then
Makes no difference what group we’re in
We are all everyday people

Every successful individual knows that his or her achievement depends on a community of persons working together.

I write about the power of trying, because I want to be okay with failing. I write about generosity because I battle selfishness. I write about joy because I know sorrow. I write about faith because I almost lost mine, and I know what it is to be broken and in need of redemption. I write about gratitude because I am thankful – for all of it.

And so on and so on
And scooby dooby dooby
Oh sha sha
We got to live together

People need to spread love towards strangers. We all bleed the same blood and we are all part of  the community.

Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success.

The power of one, if fearless and focused, is formidable, but the power of many working together is better.

Working together in concert more smoothly not only helps us move more quickly; it changes the nature of what we can undertake. When we have the confidence that we can orchestrate the group effort required to realize them, we dare bigger dreams.




There should be no excuses ever about working together for one great goal–Photo-Steve Yaver

What is important is family, friends, giving back to your community and finding meaning in life.
