This week the social convention which calls us to collective observance of the life and work of a relatively minor historical and religious figure will have led Americans to buy millions of greeting cards and tons of chocolate candy and other gifts. Beyond the explicit consumerist pressures of that single day, however, we may find it useful to pause and reflect about how we might express the intangible quality of our love and respect, not only in our daily interactions with the people (and pets!) we care about, but also in our actions which evidence our conscious commitments to those whom we choose to embrace as a part of our larger Beloved Community.
