I came across this today which I think is really what we should all consider and act upon……

All In A Day by Cynthia Rylant

A day is a perfect piece of time to live a life, to plant a seed, to watch the sun go by. A day starts early, work to do, beneath a brand-new sky. A day brings hope and kindness too…a day is all its own. You can make a wish, and start again, you can find your way back home. Every bird and every tree and every living thing loves the promise in a day, loves what it can bring. There is a faith in morningtime, there is belief in noon. Evening will come whispering and shine a bright round moon. A day can change just everything, given half the chance. Rain could show up at your door and teach you how to dance. The past is sailing off to sea, the future's fast asleep A day is all you have to be, it's all you get to keep. Underneath the great big sky the earth is all a-spin. This day will soon be over and it won't come back again. So live it well, make it count, fill it up with you. The day's all yours, it's waiting now… See what you can do.
