What is success (by Bessie Stanley)?

makororifirst-light151-1-1-1

“He has achieved success who has lived well, laughed often, and loved much;
Who has enjoyed the trust of pure women, the respect of intelligent men and the love of little children;
Who has filled his niche and accomplished his task;
Who has never lacked appreciation of Earth’s beauty or failed to express it;
Who has left the world better than he found it,
Whether an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or a rescued soul;
Who has always looked for the best in others and given them the best he had;
Whose life was an inspiration;
Whose memory a benediction.”
– Bessie Anderson Stanley

“Sharing, supporting, informing, enlightening, “entertaining”(??), encouraging, empowering, igniting, uplifting (and perhaps even) inspiring”.
(enough there for now, c!)

“Together, one mind, one life (one small step at a time), let’s see how many people (and lives) we can encourage, impact, empower, enrich, uplift and perhaps even inspire to reach their fullest potentials…and strive for and perhaps one sunny day even achieve their wildest dreams.

Lessons from the liberation of Auschwitz

‘Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.’
– George Santayana-1905).

In a 1948 speech to the House of Commons, Winston Churchill changed the quote slightly when he said (paraphrased),
‘Those who fail to learn from history are condemned to repeat it.

I (We) Must Not Hate!

Comment: To have any meaning, the Holocaust remembrance also requires a commitment.
