Working Away With Some Mid-Week Notations.....

It has been a interesting few days yet again as the team has been on the "prowl".      I ran across this that was a stark reminder about the challenge we have here in #Outsiders as we work to provide a potential trail to help transform the conversation about our World: 

 “Not everyone thinks the way you think,
knows the things you know,
believes the things you believe,
nor acts the way you would act.
Remember this
and you will go a long way
in getting along with people.”
~ Arthur Forman

This admontion underscores the simple fact that we have to respect each other.    This sense of respect is clearly lacking in some of the utterances that have been prevalent in the GOP so far which is of profound concern.   This is also as the World is witness to @COP21 that our team has been assessing (and finished off a notation on it late last night).   This is also as the War against #Daesh is being ramped up.    What Patrick Cockburn wrote about the fate of the War though was absolutely devastating: 

As I reflected upon the work done here in #Outsiders, all I could do was to take comfort in what these thoughts were from +Jonathan Huie  that the team was gracious enough to allow me to use because in the end it is about a sense of serenity that is necessary if we are to deal with the profound challenges our World continues to face in that it all begins with a sense of faith that we must have: 





He who has faith has...
an inward reservoir of courage, hope, confidence, calmness,
and assuring trust that all will come out well -
even though to the world it may appear to come out most badly.
- B. C. Forbes
