We Have This Day!
“Be these the best of times or the worst of times, they are the only times we have. Therefore, let us not waste a single moment, a single hour, a single day.”
We have this day
Let us rise to the challenges of this day. There is much to be done, there is much we can do.
There is no value in resenting what must be attempted and accomplished. Just get it done, and then there will be nothing to resent and an endless array of possibilities open before us.
There surely are difficulties, and we can ease them. There are injustices, and we can right them.
There is uncertainty, and we can spread cheer and confidence. There is darkness, and we can shine our lights upon one another and into a world hurtling into a gathering storm.
Let us stop attending to our fears, looking for excuses or reasons to put off the effort until a quieter and more optimum time.
Let us focus instead on the real value that will flow from acting right now to stride toward the realization of what might and ought to be.
On this very day, we can cooperate and create value that has never existed before. In whatever circumstances we may find ourselves, we can add to the richness of life.
Let us add energy to our moments as our transform our burdens and transmute looming threats into blooming triumphs.
Let us resolve to give the gifts of our commitment, our confidence and our action to this day our. And the treasures you build will last long after the day is over.
