Talking about Change

“If, to please the people, we offer what we ourselves disapprove,
how can we afterwards defend our work? Let us raise a standard to
which the wise and honest can repair. The event is in the hands of
God.” George Washington
Transformation is the power behind human survival.

We should all strive for the type of
transformation that fosters growing and empowering to
others influencing as far-off as possible around us. Even
when reflecting about the future and the past should be a
daily habit and was for tradition a Christmas habit, in our
days is not even a holiday custom anymore. Humans are
so disturbed by the daily social urgencies that there is not
time to invest in introspection.
Not by coincidence one of the oldest books in
history pray, “do not be conformed to this world, but be
transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing
you may discern what is the will for God, what is the good
and acceptable and perfect” (Romans 12:2).

affects owns vision and distends to family, colleagues,
friends, and everybody. True transformation is a passage
that pursues the final outcome of improving with the goal
of influencing others. Noble discovery is justified when
serves the purpose of contributing to others’
There is an urge to revive extinguishing principles
in order to justify existence and show appreciation
towards the sacrifices from the past and those taking

My social call is to hoist the principles supporting
my military community faith in order to justify my
husband’s involuntary absence.
Our generational call is to recuperate ethics and
moral values for our children, which will guarantee change
and survival.
