We have a lot of work to do now. We must stay awake and involved in order to steer our country properly.

There is a wonderful letter Alice Walker wrote to President Elect Barack Obama that is worth reading.

She has a wonderful perspective. Taking a wider perspective on everything is what we need now, a more holistic approach to our government and our lives. Looking not only at Gross National “Profit” but  Gross National “Happiness.” This will take us down the right road.

“I would advise you to remember that you did not create the disaster that the world is experiencing, and you alone are not responsible for bringing the world back to balance. A primary responsibility that you do have, however, is to cultivate happiness in your own life.” —Alice Walker
