... on being less common

Today is Boxing Day. 

In England it is the day the Common Folk become less common 
and the Aristocracy become more , 
at least for a for a day. 

I am a very Vulgar Man, in the traditional sense. 
I am a little more common then most.  

Perhaps the myth of America is that we all strive to be a little more red-neck every day.  

Like Lake Wobegon "

...where the woman are strong, 
the men are good looking 
and the children are all above average." 
( Garrison Keller)

In England, the future Queen is a Nouveau Riche daughter of a Web-site founder. 

Not since the time of Henry VII a has a more common heritage come to inherit the future thrown. 
Perhaps three fourths of the royal blood line is not blue blood.

Perhaps; I strive to be more then I am. 

That I seek to ...

  • " .... mourn with those that mourn; yea, and comfort those that stand in need of comfort, and to stand as witnesses of God at all times and in all things, and in all places that ye may be in, even until death, ..." (Moroni 18:9), , 
...most days I fail to meet the target.

If you see me today be a little more kinder
then  necessary,
and I will strive to do the same.

Seek to lift and to embrace.
Choose to love and to serve.
