Its a beautiful day to be alive, the birds are singing, the sun is out and all is well with the world.Well, for me, my saturday morning just got even better as I came across this lovely and inspiring video of President Barack Obama taking a surprise walk along the Washington Dc area speaking to and shaking hands with everyday Americans who happened to be in the area. What a huge and memorable surprise it must have been for them, some even had pictures of him...Wow!
As I watched the video, a line from one of my best poems ever came to mind..'If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,Or walk with Kings - nor lose the common touch......then you'll be a man. (If by Rudyard Kipling).
Also this lovely bible verse occured to me...
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Philippians 4:8 KJV
As we rise higher in life and attain to great heights lets remember to keep the virtues that helped us gain success like humility and honesty and sincerity,and accountabilty. Not forgetting to be graceful and kind to everyone,treating others with respect they deserve.
Watch the video.
