I believe there are still good people in this world. I believe in family, friends, laughter and tears, compassion, empathy, music,forgiveness and remembering loved ones that now reside with God. Tears of love are good for us. I believe in living the good times with every bit of energy we possess and meeting the bad times with a strong spirit and with dignity. I believe in learning from mistakes, learning to build our mind and spirit, to love better and hate less. I believe that the power of love is still a huge untapped force of energy within man and nature and that we are all a part of the flow of infinite energy that we call God.I believe that life is a time-limited gift. We have free will on one of the most beautiful planets in the universe. I believe we are blessed and that we all contribute to the outcome of history. We all share this important responsibility.
