The True Meaning Of Life

By Pat A. FlemingPublished: July 2017

The Years have passed by,
In the blink of an eye,
Moments of sadness,
And joy have flown by.

People I loved,
Have come and have gone,
But the world never stopped,
And we all carried on.

Life wasn't easy,
And the struggles were there,
Filled with times that it mattered,
Times I just didn't care.

I stood on my own,
And I still found my way,
Through some nights filled with tears,
And the dawn of new days.

And now with old age,
It's become very clear,
Things I once found important,
Were not why I was here.

And how many things,
That I managed to buy,
Were never what made me,
Feel better inside.

And the worries and fears,
That plagued me each day,
In the end of it all,
Would just fade away.

But how much I reached out,
To others when needed,
Would be the true measure,
Of how I succeeded.

And how much I shared,
Of my soul and my heart,
Would ultimately be,
What set me apart.

And what's really important,
Is my opinion of me,
And whether or not,
I'm the best I can be.

And how much more kindness,
And love I can show,
Before the Lord tells me,
It's my time to go.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association decided to serve a 100% plant-based meal at the 77th Gold Globes and its receiving applause from celebrities. Leonardo DiCaprio went on Twitter to show his support by retweeting the news and writing, “Thank you HFPA.” Bless Leonardo DiCaprio.

 

 

 

Fellow actor and climate activist Mark Ruffalo also tweeted the decision. “Our industry leads by example,” he wrote. “Vegetarian food is delicious and healthy and reduces green house gasses about as much as driving electric cars. The HFPA should be commended for this and all the other awards shows should follow suit.”

 

 

And that’s not all. Other celebrities applauded HFPA’s menu switch. Nathalie Emmanuel from Game of Thrones’ retweeted the news with an enthusiastic “errrrr YES!”
