The power of WE provides a lot of meat for though. Pardon the redundancy, but the power of we is a powerful concept, as we working together can accomplish things one person cannot. We is a team--a team not for competition for individual glory but to accomplish some feat, some influence, some improvement in the world or in some small bit of the world.
As I thought of what I might write about for Blog Action Day--the Power of We--a lot of images and events moved through my mind. I remembered an image from a presentation seen when visiting India a number of years ago. Symbolically, a bird caught in a net could not do anything but flounder, but if its mates each took a corner of the net and lifted it, the trapped bird could escape. If people work together they can escape the entrapment of poverty or other social stresses and move to freedom.

Two on the bottom shelf were made at a recent quilt retreat we had.
I have participated in conferences and events which could never have happened without the power of we putting together everything from sign-ups to signs, snacks to banquets, one on one messages to huge presentations. Nothing that one could do, but a team!
But the past year and a half has brought me into the sphere of another kind of team. With my husband's diagnosis of Multiple Myeloma a year and a half ago, we have been part of a team in search of the best and most successful treatment results. I must say, these medical teams work sometimes almost seamlessly to make everything come together.

The team of prayer warriors at home and everywhere who are in support of this endeavor. Our family.
WE will conquer this.
Today is the day of decision. We hope that with our meeting with the power of WE this morning we will know the next steps in moving toward the best of a cure.
Without the WE, it would not be possible. The power of WE.
