Wanted to share these beautiful lights from around Washington, D.C.
They are all sort of magnificent!
But even while I am marveling at them, my mind is tearing another way...
I am thinking, there is physical light, yet in so many ways the world seems dark.
We have lots technological progress to be proud of, and yet there are big problems all over the horizon.
- Nuclear and missile proliferation, and rising cyber threats.
- Rising global terrorism and potential for military conflicts
- Spiraling national debt and the trust funds for social entitlements running out
- Rising discrimination and associated hate crimes
- Family strains and the decline of marriage
- Challenges in confidence with organized religion
- World leadership at a crossroads.
We need light--but not just the physical type.
Transparency, enlightenment to solve big problems and a spiritual awakening to ensure good wins out over evil are all on order. ;-)
