As a passionate traveler, I'm often struck by signs. Signs that you pass on the road, signs to motels, barber shops, gas stations, liquor stores and churches. This one was taken in a suburb of Pittsburgh, PA and I think it says it all. Some might say life (and love Pat Benatar we know) is a battlefield, but what if it didn't have to be. If people were just a little bit nicer and more cognizant of each other. Look around, do you have to be frustrated by little things each day or things that people do that ruffle your feathers? Maybe 2008 can be the year you take just a moment's pause to let the moment pass. Practice kindness this year...for as they say, sugar can get you a lot further than salt.
