Unfriend Day
It's National Unfriend Day Charlie Brown

Clean up your Facebook page, don't keep people out of weird obligations! I discovered this past year that someone unfriended me when I realized I hadn't seen anything from her world in a few days. It was someone I didn't expect to unfriend me but you know what? That's okay. That person had their reason.  Just as I have my reasons when I unfriend people. Is it personal? Sometimes. But sometimes it isn't, sometimes it is just because we weren't really friends in the first place.
But before you, or I, go on an unfriending spree here's a few things to consider.

World Peace Day
May the people on this planet be changed.
Changed from hatred to love,
Changed from greed to giving,
Changed from selfishness to selflessness,
Changed from apathy to action,
Changed from jealousy to joy over someone's accomplishments,
Changed from intolerance to acceptance,
Changed from being destructive to being constructive,
Changed from fighting to peace,
Changed from killing to protecting life,
Changed from censorship to freedom,
Changed from ignorance to education,
Changed from fearing our differences to rejoicing our variety.

May we each take it upon ourselves to feed the hungry, cure the sick,
house the homeless, educate the illiterate, love the unloved,
compete to do the right thing instead of winning at any cost,
make heros that teach our children to
make the world a better place instead of glorifying violence and war,
stand up and speak out against things that are wrong
instead of sitting back and waiting for someone else,
demand honesty from our governments,
demand honesty from ourselves.

May we each take responsibility for our own actions
and realize that by refusing to change ourselves,
we condone all the evils in the world.
If one person changes they teach others by example,
who in turn change and teach more,
one person becomes as a pebble rolling down a mountain,
picking up more pebbles as it continues,
becoming an avalanche of change.
It can happen, it must happen, it will happen.

To make this prayer work, you have to change yourself.
