MANDELA REMEMBERED

In light of recent events, it is important to remember what greatness is…and it is grace multiplied.

ON WINGS OF GRACE UNFETTERED

HE SOARS NOW TOWARD THE SUN

OUR BATTLES DAILY MANIFEST

A WAR THAT IS NEVER WON

THEY WERE NOT STREETS STAINED WITH BLOOD

BUT FLOWING WITH RIVERS OF RED

HOW WOULD THE MADNESS STOP

AND THE HORRORS EVER BE SHED

27 YEARS IN A PRISON CELL

A RADICAL TERRORIST HE WAS CALLED

BUT UPON RELEASE THAT BRILLIANT SMILE

WAS NOT JUST FOR LEAVING THOSE GRAY WALLS

WHEN ASKED HOW WOULD HE FIND REVENGE

OF THOSE WHO FORCED HIS YEARS OF STRIFE

HE SMILED AND SAID I MUST FORGIVE

LEST MY SOUL BE IMPRISONED FOR LIFE

You might have noticed the rainbow banner across the top of WordPress.com over the weekend — our way of marking Pride month, celebrated by cities across the globe in June, as well as the US Supreme Court’s ruling legalizing same-sex marriage across all states.

Here at WordPress.com we strive to democratize publishing and empower freedom of speech. It’s amazing to see the thoughtful analyses of the Supreme Court’s decision already being published, like this excellent piece from Tropics of Meta putting the decision into long-term historical context. We’re also proud to provide a platform for all the incredibly talented LGBTQ writers who are advocating for change…

Life Lesson: Above the Clouds the Sun is Still Shining

The sky above the clouds in Philadelphia on December 12, 2014. The sky above the clouds in Philadelphia on December 12, 2014.

Last month, I was flying from Orlando to Philadelphia after ending a weeklong “workcation.” As if it wasn’t hard enough coming back home after some relaxing time away, we also had to trade in the sunny skies of Florida for the thick layer of icy clouds above Philadelphia.

I looked out the airplane window as we began our descent and saw what looked like a flat arctic tundra as far as the eye could see. Without the plane’s wing in view, anyone might believe that the photo (to the left) was taken near the North Pole.

The whole scene felt surreal, like what might exist outside the gates of heaven. No, not because of the clouds, but because of the bright blue skies that shined above the clouds. Regardless of actual temperature, the view looked warm, calm and peaceful…
