Independence gained through peace...

                                                           ...That is Latvia~

It is my honor to welcome residents of Latvia to the Journey.  What an awesome way to wake up this morning.  I turned on my computer and found 17 visitors from Latvia viewing the blog shortly after 4:00 am this morning.

Welcome Latvia, it is an honor to have you stop by!

As you all know I get super excited when a new Country logs onto the blog.  I lost count after 50 Countries as Google Analytics only shows the top 10.  So if I don't catch them when they are here if there is only one person they fall further down on the list and do not show on my chart.

I am especially excited about Latvia.  Latvia is the home of the Singing Revolution.  Between 1987 and 1991 hundreds of thousands of Estonians risked their lives for independence singing forbidden patriotic songs to gain their independence and did so without the loss of one single life.

Throughout history here in America great leaders such as Martin Luther King Jr. and Medgar Evers have believed in a peaceful protest to gain basic human rights against oppression.

I have believed in my heart my whole life that love is the answer, forgiveness is divine.  So many of us have been raised to believe we have to fight for our rights, fight for everything... that promotion, a girlfriend or boyfriend, fighting with the neighbors who try to share with us our child's behavior, etc...  Many of us walk through life fighting with ourselves, few of us walk through life with true inner peace as our guide.

Latvia is a beautiful example of the power of peace.  A people who knew that as one they were strong, their strength shared in song.  Thank you so much for stopping by people of Latvia.  I am truly honored that my message of self love and love of all others as one has reached your awesome Country of loving and peaceful people.

I believe with everything in me that the entire world can live in peace and you set a great example for that belief.  I love you all from a place of gratitude and excitement for your presence which has started my day with the most optimistic feeling of Joy in Abundance.

One Love
