“To Represent”, We must!!

All life is good and must be represented for the good that it is in
“Human qualities”

Representation is a “must”

I must represent…
You must represent…
We must represent…

…the goodness of life
…the goodness of self
…the goodness of others

Representation, “we must”.

My first recognition of the concept and construct of representation came at the age of 7 or 8   

"Mother said to all of her children, emphatically, before leaving the house…

“Always have on clean underwear and clean socks when you leave this house
You represent me!!!
I don´t ever want to go the emergency room with you
and you have on dirty underwear and socks”

This idea has stayed with me up until now!
However, it was in high school and during the Civil Rights Era, where I learned the true meaning of representation

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said

“If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as a 
Michelangelo painted
or Beethoven composed music
or Shakespeare wrote poetry. 
He should sweep streets so well that  
all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say,
"Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.”


Represent the best
Represent the highest moral virtue
One virtue at a time, if need be!!
Represent the best at whatever you epdo in life
“Become a Fulfilled Person”


Like it or not, we are, for sure, representing something!!
