But there's something else that was fun for me that night. You see, having worked in radio, I kind of got over the whole meeting famous people thing. Rock stars are just like you & me except they are way cooler and they've got more cash. Then when we lived in Iowa, we got to meet all kinds of political people. So now that's a little less exciting too. BUT. I have a reverent feeling for news people. OMG I saw Diane Sawyer and Charlie Gibson and George Stephanopolis and Wolf Blitzer and Donna Brazille and, and, and. So while that was nice, I LOVE (IN ALL CAPS FOREVER AND EVER LOVE) Tom Brokaw. I saw him bopping to music in between broadcasts or during commercials. I still smile thinking about it.
Then, this week, when I looked down at my Starbucks cup on my way to school, this made my day:
The Way I See It #130
It will do us little good to wire the
world if we short-circuit our souls.
There is no delete button for
racism, poverty or sectarian
violence. No keystroke can ever
clean the air, save a river, preserve
a forest. This transformational new
technology must be an extension of
our hearts as well as of our minds.
The old rules still apply. Love your
mother - Mother Earth.
Love him. Have a good week!
