have a strong opinion and point-of-view,
and are sure that we know how everything is supposed to be.

the health, that I am blessed with today,
regardless of what I had yesterday.
With zero-based gratitude,
I can be grateful each day for the gift of life itself.

as a people, will get to the promised land.
