Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow...memo from George O'Hare,
Memo from GEORGE O'HARE ...thoughts about living in the past
YESTERDAY , TODAY... TOMORROW
There are two days in every week about which we should not worry. Two days which should be kept free from fear and apprehension. One of these days is YESTERDAY with its mistakes and cares, its faults and blunders. Its aches and pains. YESTERDAY has passed forever beyond our control. All the money in the world cannot bring back YESTERDAY. We cannot undo a single act we performed; we cannot erase a single word we said... YESTERDAY is gone.
The other day we should not worry about is TOMORROW with its possible adversaries, its burdens, its large promise and poor performance. TOMORROW is also beyond our immediate control. TOMORROW's sun will rise, either in splendor or behind a mask of clouds but it will rise. Until it does, we have no stake in TOMORROW for it is as yet unborn. This leaves us only one day... TODAY. Any person can fight the battle of just one day. It is only when you and I add the burdens of those two awful eternities...YESTERDAY and TOMORROW that we break down. It is not the experience of TODAY that drives people made -- it is remorse or bitterness for something which happened YESTERDAY and the dread of what TOMORROW will bring.
LET US THEREFORE LIVE BUT ONE DAY AT A TIME, ONE HOUR AT A TIME, ONE SECOND AT A TIME.
WHEN is the most important moment in our life? WHEN?... The answer is NOW, since we can touch it, see it, drink it, love it... Too many of us go around all of our life saying... "Remember the good old days!"... FORGET THE GOOD OLD DAYS... Every time we "LIVE YESTERDAY" we "AVOID TODAY" and when we "AVOID TODAY" we "RUIN TOMORROW." In fact... "LIVE EVERY DAY AS IF IT'S OUR LAST AND SOMEDAY WE WILL BE RIGHT!"

“The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral, begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy. Instead of diminishing evil, it multiplies it...Returning violence for violence multiples violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. ” –Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
