After Paris The World Needs More Safety, Health, Happiness and Gratefulness

Posted on


The tragedy from Paris was planned by people with no regard for human life. It was planned by terrorists whose personal values don’t support basic humanity.  A terrible tragedy.

As humans, what do we all want more of?

I have this saying I sometimes repeat to myself.

“I wish you and I a life of safety, health, happiness and much to be grateful for”

It’s a simple saying, but when I find myself getting irritated with people it is a simple reminder that we all want the same thing. That means every last human on the planet.

Safety. We certainly want to live in a safe world, without safety we live in constant fear.

Health. Once safety is established we want to be healthy. People around the world want nutritious food, clean water and medical attention when needed.

Happiness.   All of us want to be happy. How we imagine our happiness, differs from one another, but the basic value is always there.

Gratefulness.  We have so much to be grateful for in our free and democratic society. We should wake up each day and give 5 thanks for having a warm shower, family, friends, food on the table and a roof over our heads. It is not happiness that makes us grateful. It’s gratefulness that makes us happy. Think about it.

Right now this is what the world needs more of.





Let’s not forget about these human values during these dark times. It’s easy to seek revenge and even justifiable when people have no regard for humanity. But in the end we all want the same thing.

I am calling on all leaders to embrace these values and make the world a better place.

I leave you all with this;

“I wish you and I a life of safety, health, happiness and much to be grateful for”

Say it a few times and see how it feels.
