Sunrise Over the Horizon by Welcome To My World is a presentation of the arts to benefit Mantua Worldwide Community, Inc.
When I was a child, I often imagined changing the world. I used to try to save new born birds that fell to the ground. Early summer mornings, I would sneak out the house to go feed the homeless. Years ago, just before I started college, I got my driver’s license. So, during the holiday festivities, I was able to ease out for a few hours to go to nursing homes and hospitals to sing and read poetry to those who had been forgotten.
There is no passion to be found in playing small—in settling for a life that is less than you are capable of living.
Life is a dream for the wise,
a game for the fool,
a comedy for the rich,
a tragedy for the poor.
-- Sholom Aleichem
To fast forward to this new season in my adult life, I am surprised as I look back and see that the path I had been traveling has paved the way for me to expand what I had been doing all along as so many hearts have opened to join me on this path to create positive changes in our local and global communities. Such a journey has allowed me to connect with so many loving people who share my passion and interests. Somewhere deep inside me is that little girl who believes that together, we can create a better place not just for one race, but the entire human race, animal kingdom, nature, our country, and the world.
