Trending: Eva Longoria, Kristen Bell, Peace on Earth?

This is one of those blogs that just has to get out of my head.  My friend Cindy told me about checking for “trending” on Yahoo when I was talking to her about blogging today.  I checked it 10 times through-out the day.  I am not going to tell you that for 6 of those times I did not recognize at least half of the people trending. Kristen Bell? Niecy Nash? Sarah Lancaster?  Does this mean I need to get a life or that I have one?

And then I got to thinking about a post I put up this morning on my Facebook from photographer extraordinaire Chris Jordan’s website.  If you take the time to follow this link, you have to click right on the actual piece to appreciate the magnificence of the work. You won’t believe it – trust me. http://www.chrisjordan.com/gallery/epu/#e-pluribus-unum. The caption reads:

After reading that caption & then checking trends, I admit it bugged me all day what the trends were. I couldn’t help but think what it if we woke up tomorrow morning and peace,social justice, and environmental stewardship were trending?  What if focus on fair trade was trending? What if water bottle usage in the US was dropping dramatically and all the wires picked it up? What if we woke up and the headlines read:  Number of Organizations Around The World Devoted to Peace Surpasses the Two Million Mark!

People say that I’m a dreamer. And I’m not the only one.

    No, indeed, you are not the only one. And I hope LOTS of others will join us, and create a new trend!

    Amen Mrs. Green! When we each think about “what difference can I really make in this world”, we should consider shifting what we focus on in the “news”….where we put our energy…what we “trend”. It seems to me that we are always trying to escape our reality by focusing on what is so not real. How different would our daily experiences be if we created our reality by focusing on everything that really is vital to it? Great blog post…really.

    You’ve put it out there, Mrs. Green. It’s a start. You’re the vehicle for trend here in your own back yard and it can only keep moving upward and outward!

    I am sorry it took me so long to respond to this. I thank you for your comments. Just a couple of things. I don’t think most people are dumb. If that’s how it sounded, sorry. As for how big I dream? I believe that there can be peace on earth, I believe that the people in Egypt are a sign to the world that oppression and greed won’t be tolerated. I believe in the power of their dreams and am doing my part to change the piece of the world in which I live. I spend just about every waking minute of my life trying to make a difference. When people like you take the time to put so much thought into a response, it sustains me. Thank you.
