A SHARED HUMANITY
By The Editors of Boomers International
The word "Boomers," in the context of "Baby Boomers," is
defined by how old we are. It is also defined by the year
we were born and by the life experiences we have seen.
We have lived through way too many wars. We have seen
too many disasters -- some of our own making, and some
that were thrust upon us by the heavens. We have seen
hatred, jealousy, envy, famine, and sorrow.
We Boomers have touched every part of life -- from
the joy of our children being born, to the death of
our loved ones, to the undeniable fact of our own
mortality. Every day has brought a new challenge.
Sometimes we have succeeded, at other times we have
failed. Hopefully, we have gained wisdom along the
A new day has dawned. It is time for a change.
It is now the dawn of a new day and a New World.
As the year 2000 swept across the planet from time
zone to time zone, we saw with our own eyes that
WE are truly one people -- one human race. A new
century is upon us. The time has come to share more
than our age, more than our experiences, more than
our triumphs, more than our sorrows.
It is time to SHARE OUR HUMANITY.
We, as Boomers, have inhabited this beautiful
planet for a very short time. As we all know, our
world is getting smaller every day. The advancement
of science and technology has given us the wonderful
opportunity to reach out and around the globe as we
never have before. The flip of the calendar from
December 31, 1999 to January the 1,2000 has brought
us new horizons. We can see further than we ever
have before. We can reach out and touch another hand
-- and share. We can extend the LOVE and the
GOODNESS and the WISDOM that humankind has
blessed us with to people of every age, every race,
and every religion to every corner of this beautiful
GOODNESS and LOVE and WISDOM is the answer for this
new age. SHARING it with all humanity is what we
If we want our children -- and their children --
to have the best world possible, we must do our
part and we must do it NOW. We must replace ENVY
and JEALOUSY with COMPASSION and FORGIVENESS. We
must replace IGNORANCE with KNOWLEDGE. We must
replace WAR with PEACE. We must replace FAMINE
with ABUNDANCE. We must replace HATE with LOVE.
Looking into a mirror.
If we do this right, and if we have learned from
our past, we can change the world. By holding up a
mirror up to ourselves and saying, "Look into my
heart. It is filled with only goodness and compassion
and love," and sharing that reflection with everyone
we touch, then -- and only then -- can we make this
new dawning, this new Century, and this new
Millennium, a time of growth, wisdom, and love.
BEHOLD THE MIRACLE OF A SHARED HUMANITY.
Now is the TIME and this is the PLACE.
