Wild flowers - sharing

wild flowers - Cuba Meadow

From Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass:

I believe a leaf of grass is no less than the journeywork of the stars,
And the pismire is equally perfect, and a grain of sand, and the egg of a wren,
And the tree-toad is a chef-d'oeuvre for the highest,
And the running blackberry would adorn the parlors of heaven,
And the narrowest hinge in my hand puts scorn to all machinery
And the cow munching with depress'd head surpasses any statue,
and a mouse is miracle enough to stagger sextillions of infidels.

Against such a view of nature, we must appreciate and value the differences amongst us. In such differences, we can find each others strength, and in those strengths find something to learn.

Be willing to learn.

Be willing to share.

Commencement begins today!
