For the 72nd

Could we

Drive like the road is ours to keep safe….

Walk with unscreened eyes open to each other…

Talk from our hearts of our pain and our joy…

Listen with unbudded ears to the sounds around us all…

Think more slowly and less surely…

Ask more questions we have yet to answer…

Sing our part in the harmony of us all ….

Dance to drums familiar and strange…

Give from our blessings and feel doubly blessed….

Take with humility putting envy aside….

Love what is common and also uncommon….

Hate with heavy heart and hope for less…

Learn to be we…

Could we?
