Right Now

Reminder to self:
Somewhere in the world right now
a new life is being born
a hero is saving
someone’s life, or home
or child, or pet
a new love is beginning
between two people newly-met
the sun is rising on a new day
and the sun is setting and settling
and families are gathering
to share a meal together.
Somewhere right now a musician
is singing a new song,
an author begins a new
story, an artist is starting
a new painting, a scientist
is making an important discovery
and a student is learning something
that will help make the world
a better place.
Remember that right this moment
there is wonderful good happening.
