Making a Contribution For Peace For All Mankind

Essay by Patricia Feager

 

 

"Here men from the planet Earth first set foot upon the Moon.

We came in peace for all mankind."

---Neil Armstrong 

 

This isn't a moon shot but isn't the Water Lily a beautiful symbol of peace? We owe a debt of gratitude to our Astronauts' who courageously gave and sacrificed so much more than what many people will ever do in a lifetime by braving the wilderness in galaxies from outer space. 

 

Theirs, our Astronauts quest for the moon brought countries and people together in hopes of bringing "peace for all mankind." Whenever there is a quest to achieve something more that seems impossible there is uncertainty often accompanied by criticism. If only mankind's unbridled faith to achieve more would begin and end in peace then perhaps harmony and a sense of belonging would be possible.

 

Landing on the Moon wasn't the genesis of most discoveries we are told to be ascribed to chance. It involved training, determination, listening, education, persistence, fortunes, and misfortunes. The dream began long before Neil Armstrong set foot on the moon by others who came before him, like Newton who by chance was able to find a relative between the law of universal gravity and the falling of an apple. 

 

Putting things into perspective, each and every human being has the ability to contribute to the universal goal to succeed. Whatever success means to you, whether it is achieving the American dream made of mortar and bricks on earth or something beyond the imagination, history tells us that discoveries of land or the moon aren't just a stroke of luck, but rather a culmination of many heroic efforts by different people who believe in hard work and making the effort to achieve more for the greater good. Even failures teach us more. In this life, everyone has a chance to make a contribution that begins and ends in "peace for all mankind."

Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400 - thank you!

May you also have a wonderful Sunday. Yes! The heatwave is upon us here in TX too. Let us not be indolent, always finding reasons to complain about the weather. Aren't we the lucky ones who have the ability to have cool ways to get out of the heat. 

Happy Sunday, to you!

Good morning, Patricia - your post lead me to think again of that familiar Neil Armstrong quote:  it really wasn't about one step but an accumulation of scientific explorations, discoveries and yes, mistakes that came before then along with many other things.

Michael Jacobs - Landing on the Moon was never was just about one small step. Until July 1969, there were many failed engineering designs and futile attempts to resolve mechanical imperfections. Those who believed, the drivers behind the scenes who took the initiative or followed orders from above were eager to succeed. It really did take more than just a NASA village to get Neil Armstrong and other Astronauts to the moon and other planets.

Robin Wells - Thank you for your comment that meant so much to me!

Using our head to resolve problems is very effective. When we do our very best, the best is yet to come, even if we didn't get credit or found answers on YouTube or searching the Internet. The human brain is irreplaceable.

Lottie Kendall - Thank you, very much.

It takes an open-minded person whose starting point is the strength of character and of will to understand that life isn't always about success and to know that each failure can bring oneself, or others to achieve success. That's what true contribution means. Not everyone gets to put the cherry on top of the cake. Strength comes from the base, foundation, or down below the cherry on the cake.

It is crazy to think about someone stepping foot on the moon and I figured that people would be living on Mars by now, haha.

Brian England - Opportunities are never out of reach! Those who are determined to succeed in building houses or development on Mars just might succeed sooner than you think! 

Would you like to go down in history as the first Real Estate Agent who sold a house on Mars? Just think, there could be a Subdivision called Brian England Village.

Some reach for the moon, some for the stars, what's important is to find our passion and figure out the way to best contribute. We should all try to leave the world a better place.  That is an ideal way to leave our mark.

Hi Patricia- beautiful photos!  And, once again, you are so right. So many achievements in the world were made by many people and took many steps. Each one of us can contribute to that.

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD - My dream is for the children. May their passion for better things to come be planted at an early age and cultivated to reach beyond the stars or anything older generations ever imagined could be possible.

George Souto - We are all contributors to our society whether we are conscious of it or not. The key is to never give up or to be so arrogant that we think we did anything successful, good or great all by ourselves. Failure is a necessity. After all, life is not that easy. 

I hope you have a nice evening.
