Just for today, be present to the community within, guided by their resources, the power within.

To awaken, to connect, to commune, to be joyful.

Observe a separateness, a loneliness, a disconnection of sorts

Recognize the calling to be a part of, to gather, to celebrate.

Put down the cell phones, the X Box and turn off the TV.

It is not there…

Ann Oswald Laird

Celebration, a coming together, to commune, to laugh and to honor
