The Power of “Positude”

The Lunatictude of 2020 followed us into 2021.

The conspiracy of lies spilled over into rage.

While the world watched in amazement.

Feartude was prevalent bringing out the worst in human behavior.

Faithtude looks upon the scene with the hope that we can rise above our failures and our shame.

December 31st at midnight the practitioners of Positude set themselves in agreement with the possibility of positive change.

In the midst of chaos and confusion true wisdom lifts her lovely voice with dignity and sanity. Faith is stronger than fear so we set our faces like a flint and we stagger not under the weight of the truth:

We are better and stronger together!

Be well my beloved friends.
Always Agape,
