'Few will have the greatness to bend history itself, but each of us can work to change a small portion of events and in the total of all those acts will be written the history of this generation.' ~Robert Kennedy
The new edition of RTE's 'Reeling In The Years' is great viewing. The new run of the series is taking a look at the years 2000-2009. The programme captures in a lovely way moments of history that stood out for different reasons. With much of history we don't have much influence but yet our impact on local events and small events is huge. When we put together all of these little moments we are indeed writing the history of this generation. Sometimes we don't give ourselves enough credit for the impact and the difference we make to any given day. It's not about achieving lots, it's not about having lots of money and it's not about having it all worked out. From a spiritual point of view it's all about being who we are, doing our best, being open to opportunity and possibility, having an open mind and simply using all that's been given to us in the best way we can. We thank God for the gift of history. Help us to learn as much from it as we can and help us continue writing history of which we all play a vital role.
