    Let us all celebrate Mother’s Day and Father Day’s every day, not just a certain time on the calendar. Let us hope for a world without indefensible poverty, chaos, wars, suffering and more; we can aspire to do better. There is so much joy in being a parent, and despite our human flaws we all try our best to shape the next generation of guardians and leaders of this world. I buried both parents, one long ago but their memories are forever etched in my heart. Happy Father’s Day and Mother’s Day to all, each day is a celebration of life. Our parents, grandparents are here for such a short time, enjoy that precious momment as we are candles in the wind, flickering away. In the circle of life, may we all step up to the plate.
