Take a stand

“You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life”
Winston Churchill

This is one of my most favorite quotes from one of my favorite people. One day I will write a post about Sir Winston Churchill and why it is that I admire this larger than life figure. A man as eccentric as he was brilliant.

But for now, given some of the excruciating headlines of this new morning, I think it appropriate that we all be encouraged to take a stand for something positive in our lives–be it an issue that is big or small–public or personal—but positive none the less. This world of ours needs the “Positive” right now, today–with no more added to the negative.

Following in the words of blessed Pope John Paul II, we must “be not afraid”… as we must “rise up and be on our way”… to things that matter and to things that are positive.
Take the positive stand today!
