A Reason for Being!

By wintersixfour


“If you ever doubt your own reason for being –

Intelligence – is the light that must never be allowed to go out!

Even during the pure existence of doing and learning – thinking and being,

each of us still holds the “key” to life itself.

The key is in your hand!

Your reason for being –

to open any door you can to enrich and educate humanity!”

~ Penny L Howe, 2013

Love, hope and prayers to all those for their loss and struggles in the Philippines!

  1. Great inspirational poem; PH…

    “Each of us still holds the “key” to life itself/ The key is in your hand!”

    Wise words… You always leave me thinking…

    Thanks . Much love xoxo Aquileana 😉

    • And I do have enough scientific background and faith to understand that many hearts extending hopes and prayers to those afflicted does reach those so in need – (and as you say extending warmth) as well as to those actively involved in bringing the basic needed physical elements to the Philippines! xo

  2. One key fits all. Thank you Penny.

    What is going on in the Philippines is so sad. The suffering makes me so sad. I wish there was something more I could do about it.

    • We can all of us pray, think positive thoughts, contact our local government representatives to remind them that we (the citizens that they represent) have concerns for the very lives of these many 100’s of 1,000’s of people in dire need of basic things so they can stay alive (clean water, food and shelter)! So very little for each of us to do, but something most of us are capable of doing, dear friend – which I know you are doing! xo

Thank you for your thoughts!
