Honors for the Shattered

This blog post is not about flags made of polyester or nylon. I promise you it is not! So read on and learn something about a flag made from a different kind of fabric! It always feels good to show off the red, white and blue no matter what medium its made from.

Did you know? The largest stained glass flag in the world is right here in America. So, today, let’s put political preferences aside and enjoy this image, posted for all who are patriotic and proud to be an American.

This stained glass installation hangs in a public place named after one of America’s wounded warriors, which seems appropriate given the fact that the ancient poet of love, Rumi once said,  “The wound is the place where the light enters you.”

Want to know what city this glass installment hangs in? In Lawrence, Kansas at the Dole Institute of Politics.

Want to know another interesting fact? It’s bookends are two steel “I” beams from the World Trade Center.
Today I feel gratitude for Bob Dole
and all the other wounded warriors and civil servants (past and present)
who have so honorably served our country.

Pass it On

Today’s blog is simply to re-share one of our previous blogs because we’ve been asked the question –  who is Elizabeth Kubler-Ross?  She was a pioneer in the hospice movement. A psychiatrist and humanitarian who deeply understood people and their emotions during the most difficult stages of life.

Thoughts like hers are worthy of remembering and passing along to other people. Every single living person around the world regardless of age and background go through times of darkness and light. And today we hope you have your glitter on!

Join us next time as we explore how art brings beauty to the soul.
