Dear Yoda,
You are quite the theologian
philosopher and poet.

You said
“Do or do not.
There is no try.”
and extended a call to
*do* kindness
*do* acts of justice
“do” speak up for
… the bullied
… the disabled
… the environment
… the addict
… the mentally ill
… the lonely
… the impoverished
… the victimized
… the grieving
… the homeless
… the abused animals
… the elderly
… the frightened
… the planet
… the chronically ill
those who
… cannot speak up for themselves
…  need other voices
so that a choir of concern is heard.
and change can begin

You set a challenge
and put forth a reminder that
… Change *can* begin
… Peace *can* appear
… Joy *can* be experienced
… Hope *can* be renewed
perhaps only in oh-so-small steps
perhaps only in oh-so-small glimpses
… but change *can* happen
when an attitude of Yoda
begins
… in our heart
… in our mind
… in our spirit
… in our action.

The change might not happen
in the ways we want.
… or expect.
… or in the time frame we need
But change *can* happen.
“Do or do not.
There is no try.”
