Yesterday, at the start of practice 238 with a team completely out of control (good), Hopper grabbed the reins and prepared a couple movie clips designed to make us think about our country, communities, and ourselves. The clips highlighted the struggle we’ve had in our land to live out our motto – “e pluribus unum,” (out of many, one). We are far from united and we’ve come a long way, haven’t we? What is my biggest struggle, you ask? Same as yours.
Our biggest struggle, regardless where we’re from, what we’ve got, what we’ve done, or haven’t for that matter is the struggle within – the struggle to go from hole to whole.
Hole to whole.
All of us humans are attempting to go from humans with a hole to humans that are whole. One dub of a difference, huh. Work on your worldview, friend, your dub if you will. Accept others, especially those with different dubs. This is e pluribus unum in action. Our country, like each of us is always a wip – a work in process. Hole to whole. One “w” of a difference.
What do you believe makes you whole, friend? What are you doing to try to fill your hole? Or, are you kicking the can down the road, friend and choosing some kinda distraction of the day? Are you awake or sleepwalking through life? Hole to whole, one “w” of a difference. Slow down and sit with this one for awhile, friend. Good job, Hopper, making us think in 238. Keep working. Good…
