While we are not all Irish, it is great to be celebrating community and, in an era of corporate greed and control, to revel and sing and toast the amazing spirit of people!
Our economic system has been bent to serve one purpose: to build wealth for just a few. So it’s not surprising that it hurts the environment, creates unemployment, and denies people a fair share of the immense global prosperity.
What we need is an economic system that works for everyone, not just the rich. Here’s to an end to #ExtremeGreed, and a new commitment to widespread prosperity.
We need to work together – to make our economies and governments fair, and to restore hope and prosperity for regular people.
Fairness, dignity and community are things we all want to have, and can share. Let’s find ways to show that today.
When we cooperate together we find shared strengths and real success. Let’s find ways to make good things happen for all of us.
When we share time and community our differences fade, and we see that we all value peace, fairness, and a good future. We are better together.
We are all part of the solution – of making our world better for people. It starts with making decisions that put people first, in our work, and in our community.
This is not working. Hard-working people can’t find good jobs, and people with piles of money have pulled away. We need a way that works, for everyone.
We all need to learn – politicians, business leaders, all of us – what matters most is people. Let’s find ways to show we’re learning.
A good time to put people first is now – in our homes, in our communities, and in our businesses. People matter most.
