A Revolution or The Revolution

Every day, the earth rotates 360 degrees on its axis. Each year, the earth revolves around the sun. Revolutions are a natural part of the ebb and flow of life. Every breath we take is a potential revolution. Every thought, every word, every gesture. We need not plan or wait for a big revolutionary event; the very act of being alive is itself a revolution.

I admit that I sometimes hold naïve and romantic ideas about revolution. The word revolution seems to terrify most people, even though our nation was founded after a revolutionary war. Revolution understood as the unfolding process of life can beautify and sanctify our world. This is what I mean by revolution.
