New Medium, Same Message

I’m not sure the human mind was meant to absorb all the things we are expected to absorb today; but like it or not, we have become a world community.

The signs were there, but I think most of us were too absorbed in our own localized lives to believe that someday the world would encroach on us.

Be that as it may, as we move into 2012 I think it’s important to remember the lesson of digital photography: It may be a new medium, but the message remains the same.

United we stand, divided we fall. The time has passed when people of the world could pit themselves against one another and return to their corners to glare at each other.

We have approached the time when leaders must consider the greater good.

There are too many fingers on the triggers of too many dangerous weapons.

It’s time that Peace on Earth and Good Will Towards Man becomes more than just an old saying and becomes a goal.

As we move into 2012, I choose to be the eternal optimist and hope that the

Golden Rule becomes a universal truth.

Happy New Year! Peace on Earth!
