Coming together in Unity should happen everyday on our journey of life

Unity is one of those words we take for granted, in this ” all about me” Society for which we live, we may come to together and show unity for short times and at different times along our journey’s, but at the end of the day within an ” All about me” Society, it is about me and for me always within our journey, when you put together a society of “all about me”  and combine it with a service oriented society, that is dependent on customer service, now you are stirring the pot with ingredients that do nothing but make the dish very sour.

To look deep within the word ” Unity”, you will see a bigger word of ” Unified” and you will also see that it has nothing to do with ” all about me”, when we are unified there is nothing that will stand in our way, as it is true there is power in numbers, when we become ” all about me” we become very lonely deep within ourselves.

As we walk our paths along our journey of life, there will be many changes that will come to us on our paths we chose, as these changes happen we then reject them cause they don’t revolve around us? Which then furthers our loneliness as we move further on our paths, when we unify with each other is when we accept these changes, so we all can move forward stronger and better along our journey’s of life.

To be Unified with each other in a Society, means we become stronger and better in everything we do, cause now we have many that help each other, instead of each of one of us butting heads in order to get ahead of one another, there are certain sports teams that have showed us this throughout all our journey’s, but three teams in my lifetime come to mind, these three teams also showed us that sports can be a great influence in all our lives, both these teams were not the best talented teams in their leagues, but they played with a strong heart, a will to win and for each one of their fellow teammates, the first team which holds a special place in my heart is the 2011 Boston Bruins, when you say “team”, this was a team that did everything on and off the ice for each other, they unified as one and won Lord Stanley s cup for all their hard work they did for one another, the other team that holds a special place in my heart, are the 2004 Boston Red Sox, forget about the not winning for 86 years, this was a team that unified as one to win the championship that year, they were not the most talented team or the most favorite to win, but they unified as one, brought the strength of each other together, for one common goal and that goal was to win it all, another team that has a special place in my heart, were the 2013 Boston Red Sox, this team not only won the championship for each other, they did it for an entire City, that was hurting from the Boston Marathon bombing, this team unified as one, with the goal of unifying an entire city and making it strong once again (#bostonstrong), these three teams showed us that, when we unify together, instead of being all about me, no matter what kind of change comes to us on or path of our journey of life, we will all be successful at everything we do, being unified shows strength, being all about me shows weakness, so coming together in unity will always be the strongest and best way, to walk our paths along our journey of life.

” to show unity is to bring many together, as all about me only shows we are weak and think we are stronger than everybody else”

” when change happens it is better to unify, than being all about me, as being unified makes us stronger and better, which will help us accept the change to be better”

Mayor Menino was more than a Mayor…….

Mayor Thomas Menino might of been the Mayor of the city of Boston, but to a Human Being of this Society here on this planet Earth, he was a great man and one that should be looked up to and looked at as a role model for all to try to achieve in being like him.

Mayor Menino was the Mayor of Boston for 20 years, the longest tenure of any Mayor of the City’s past, he gave everything to the city and the people out of the love from his heart, he loved his job, he loved his role in the community and he loved meeting with all the citizens of the city everyday of his tenure, Mayor Menino had great support around him in his Wife and family, which made his love of people flourish even that much more, if we all had just 10% of Mayor Menino’s qualities inside us, this Society and all the Planet would be a better place to live, with more love of each other instead of all the hatred that is out there.

Mayor Menino was a great man as now he is sitting in heaven with God and Jesus, may he rest in peace after all the great work he did here on Earth, prayer’s and thoughts go out to all his family and his friends, as Mr. Menino had plenty of them, Mayor Menino was a great leader and helped rejuvenate the city of Boston in many ways, as someone that lived in the city while in college at the time he first came in as Mayor, to reflect on that time to present time, he has changed the city for the better in many ways,  he also treated everybody around him with respect and dignity no matter who you were, he never judged you by the way you looked on the outside, as he always saw what was on the inside and helped in any way that he could, as a great leader he knew just how to lead properly and when he needed he ruled with an iron fist, but always did it while showing you dignity and respect.

Mayor Menino was always a Human Being first and the Mayor second, with all the Boston sports teams and their championships, it was he that had the idea of the rolling rallies with the duck boats, well I say give the Mayor one last look at the city he built and changed, by giving him a ride on the duck boats through the streets of Boston, so he can have one last look of the city he loved and the people of Boston can have one last look at the Mayor they loved and held dear.

Mayor Menino may you rest in peace, as you look down on the city you loved so dearly and see the fruits of your labor prosper, as the people you love keep your memory strong in all they do, just as a true Bostonian would do in the name of #bostonstrong.

P.S. Please say hello to Martin, Linzi, Crystal and Officer Collier, let them know we all think of them often and we will never forget in our prayers.

” Mayor Menino was a great man, that put his love of his job and the city he ran for 20 years, above all else, cause he believed in everybody regardless of who you were”

” The legacy of Mayor Menino would be of, when you treat people with respect and dignity, the love will pour like water out of a faucet, with no room for any kind of hatred at all”
