With so much upheaval in a divisive US and the world, the general consensus is that 2016 wasn’t the best of years. I was trying to think of a positive message I could post for the new year, even though it looks like a bit of a rocky road ahead before things get better. Then I heard a commercial in the background playing the Beatles’ classic ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE. I’m sure John Lennon and the band did not picture this heartfelt sentiment would someday be used to hawk products like eye drops, or countless other product ads it has been the soundtrack for. But then I thought how wonderful it is that the song’s timeless message is being broadcast once again to a whole new generation. 2017 will mark the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love when my generation thought love could change the world – and maybe it can if we all continue to show compassion for one another. Spread the word – “All you need is love – love is all you need” Happy New Year!
