It is the song within the heart:
Of the sun, that makes her forever shine,
The dawn, that encourages her to greet you with a smile,
The flower, that urges her to bloom for adoration,
Of the bird, that inspires her to warble the melody of love,
And the moon, that motivates her to continuously evolve in beauty.

Do you have your own song:
That makes you dream of grandeur,
Colors your thought with a rainbow of optimism,
Prompts you to plant the seeds of kindness,
Drives you to accomplish something remarkable,
And motivates you to serve others with a touch of humanity?

When a leaf stops dancing to the music of life, and the melody of the birds has ceased, it changes to yellow and gently falls off the tree of life.

Be a green leaf that celebrates life with every new dawn, absorbing a full cup of energy with every sunrise.
Awaken humanity to the call of love!

Feeling good is:
Greeting a stranger with a smile,
Chatting with your elderly neighbor's,
And treating them with care and compassion.

Soothing another's pain,
Feeding hungry stomachs,
Standing with the oppressed,
Rendering service to others for no return.

Exploring a new idea,
Enriching your knowledge,
Reflecting and pondering,
Planting the seeds of positive change.

Listening to the whispers of love,
Inspiring the next generation,
Being around intelligent people,
Enjoying the company of soft-hearted friends.

Restoring people's shattered dreams,
Be their candle and their lifeboat,
Listening to the cries of innocent souls,
And showing them the way to a new dawn.

Lifting the spirit of the broken-hearted,
Delivering them through a helping hand,
Dressing your soul in a garment of giving.
Lifting your voice to be the champion of the forgotten.

Counting your blessings,
Reciting your prayers,
Contemplating the universe,
Listening to nature’s songs with muted words.

Sixty-seven children have been slaughtered.
Sixty-seven dreams have been shattered.
Sixty-seven beautiful faces have now vanished.
Sixty-seven vibrant smiles have faded.
Sixty-seven beds are left empty.

Palestinian children, like all children, love to play.
Palestinian children are longing for peace.
The children of Gaza dream to be teachers, nurses, artists, engineers, and doctors.
Palestinian children want to breathe.
Palestinian children's lives matter!

(Palestinian children killed by Israel in Gaza in May, 2021)

Fight for your beliefs; fight for what you know in your heart is right.
Fight for the stray animals without homes.
Fight for controlling pollution and preserving nature.
Fight for justice for all of the children of Adam and Eve.

Speak up against poverty.
Speak up against the insane massacres of innocent lives.
Speak up against senseless wars.
Speak up against bigotry, hatred, and labeling.
Speak up against all of the ignorance!
Don’t ever be the silent bystander.

Stand up tall, don’t even think about giving up in surrender.
Stand up for those who are crippled with pain.
Stand up for those who are powerless to do so for themselves.
Stand up for exemplary patient care.
Stand up for well-deserved employees to get appropriate wages
Stand firmly for hope, happiness, love, and peace.
Don’t let the light, creativity, and inspiration in you die.

A flower knows that she can’t delight everyone with her scent and beauty.
A bird comprehends that he can’t make everybody happy with his melodious songs.
An olive tree realizes that she can’t feed all of the people’s hunger.
A water spring recognizes that she can’t quench the thirst of all humankind.
The moon is aware that he can’t eliminate all of the universe’s darkness.

Yet, they do their share because they believe in making a difference. They strive to make it a better world, a globe full of hope, inspiration, and giving!
