Thought 4 the Week: On #IranDeal & "Thinking Beyond The Now"

Iran and World Powers have agreed on a deal to transform the relationship Iran and the World have had for 10 years as a result of Iran's Nuclear Program.    Our team just published the "Notations" series within the past 30 mintues as we await statements by President Rouhani of Iran and President Obama in Washington.

As our team continues to assess the agreement and the possiblities it represents, our team ran across this from William Faulkner that goes to the heart of what can be possible.   Diplomacy has triumphed as all lived up to the admonition by him--something that hopefully all who oppose understand it: 

“You cannot swim for new horizons
until you have courage to lose sight of the shore.”

Our team also chose this from our daily must reads by +Jonathan Huie  on Peace which is in and of itself ever so crucial for us all to embrace:

There is no way to peace; peace IS the way.
- A. J. Muste

I am not only a pacifist but a militant pacifist.
I am willing to fight for peace.
Nothing will end war unless the people themselves refuse to go to war.
- Albert Einstein

Never believe that a few caring people can't change the world.
For, indeed, that's all who ever have.
- Margaret Mead

Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace.
- St. Francis of Assisi

We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.
- Martin Luther King, Jr.
