Obsolete

Daily Note

Every day, a photograph, a poem. Today, and on many days, I feel obsolete and irrelevant— the world belongs to the youth. Indeed, I could share my historical perspectives and experiences from over seventy years, but it seems the flow of history is that the important lessons of life must be felt from one’s own experiences.

I am hoping the youth of today will choose democracy and social justice, and the dream that we are all created equal; no one is above the law; everyone’s voice must be heard.

Two quotes for today I hope others, especially youth, consider:

What do we live for, if it is not to make life less difficult to each other?

George Eliot

When Jesus was asked what must be done to inherit eternal life, he affirmed what he called the greatest commandment: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind; and love your neighbor as yourself” (Luke 10:27).


This is one commandment, not two. It is a commandment about our relationships—our relationship with God, and with each other.


It is a commandment not just about whom we must worship but also about whom we must love. It is a commandment not just about what we must believe but also about what we must do.

And— consider your voice and your own rights. Would you deny that to another human being? Your vote is your voice in a democracy— I hope you continue the fight for that right for all Americans.

“The right to vote has long been considered one of the cherished freedoms key to American democracy.”

Time for youth to choose the future.

Obsolete

And irrelevant
wrinkles holding history;
Time for youth to choose.
