45. Pledging Our Allegiance -

The Pledge of Allegiance, just 31 words, is an encounter with wisdom from the past, taking us from what we hold, to what holds us. It is memorized, recited and ingrained into our daily lives.

And, as sometimes happens with the routine, the deep meaning becomes lost. The profound becomes rote, taken for granted, and reciting the words of the Pledge almost a counter-cultural act. In a throwaway culture, we still preserve this tradition. In a society that celebrates novelty and creativity, we recite words written long ago. In a country that values individuality, we recite them in unity. When the accepted wisdom changes minute by minute in our lives, we repeat this pledge over and over because it is so important. In a time that commitment is not always honored, we pledge our allegiance.

51. Life’s Many Graduations -

Delivering a commencement speech is the easy part. Writing one is more difficult.

57. Le Bonheur 101 Proof That Life Lessons Abound -

Learning does not cease when you graduate, at any level. Learning is a lifelong journey.

As author George Whitman once said, “The entire world is my school, and all humanity is my teacher.” I thought about that quote when I received an invitation to participate in Le Bonheur 101. I was not sure what I would learn about a hospital that I didn’t already know. I have spent more than my share of time inside hospitals as a patient and as a visitor when friends or family members were ill, and I have many friends in the medical profession who work in hospitals. However, the 101 part intrigued me. It sounded like school. So, for the sake of furthering my education, I accepted the invitation, and showed up on the assigned day ready to learn and gain a new perspective.

61. All Dividend Stocks Not Created Equal -

There are 422 dividend paying stocks in the S&P 500 Index, but not all are created equal.

62. Keep Hope Alive for Next Generation -

Teilhard de Chardin, the controversial French philosopher and Jesuit priest, once said, “The future belongs to those who give the next generation reason for hope.”

He was controversial, as are most visionaries, because his insights reduced the complex to the simple, the difficult to the achievable. Long before there was a plethora of slogans to promote achievement, Chardin was a champion of potential, of unlimited possibilities, of the evolution of personal goals, of always going from good to great. But hope – what’s hope have to do with that next generation who are sitting in classrooms across our country? Actually, hope has everything to do with it. Hope gives a future orientation to students who are bored at school.

WASHINGTON (AP) – For years, many Americans followed a simple career path: Land an entry-level job. Accept a modest wage. Gain skills. Leave eventually for a better-paying job.

The workers benefited, and so did lower-wage retailers such as Wal-Mart: When its staffers left for better-paying jobs, they could spend more at its stores. And the U.S. economy gained, too, because more consumer spending fueled growth.

A research study was done that asked 100 people who were all more than 90 years of age to describe what they would do differently if they had to live their lives over. The responses most often given were that they would take more risks, that they would spend more time reflecting, and that they would do more that would live on after they were gone. I was not a part of that survey, but I would like to add one more to that list of “do overs”: to listen more.
