“Great minds discuss ideas. Average minds discuss events. Small minds discuss people.” - Eleanor Roosevelt

Yours is truly a great mind Cylvia. Many of us are trapped in the vortex of average and small minds, continually reacting to the idiocies which we allow other small and average minds to corrupt us with.

You are not.

Thank you for your loving and defiant leadership.

Now more than ever, it’s essential to listen to those who encourage us to be borne before the winds of essential change. It’s only by watching, listening to and actually hearing logical, rational, insightful, leaders rising above that enable closed, damaged and hardened minds and spirits become opened and channeled.

It would be much easier, and in the near-term more gratifying to the masses to feed and reinforce the retrograde positions of cynicism, defeatism, finger-pointing, and most destructive of all, self-righteous indignation and rage.

While it seems a fantasy to consider that it’s possible to forge solutions with any we so vehemently disagree with and blame, allowing ourselves to be lulled into stubborn inaction by that same indignation and rage guarantees that no solutions will be forthcoming.

Our only hope is to continue to try to open our minds and spirits to the ideas that great mind’s present us, even as our own beaten spirits and increasingly smaller minds blame other small minds thereby exponentially increasing the speed of our own demise.

Keep up the good work. We need you.
