Happy Birthday Baha'i Thought


Who woulda guessed that yesterday, September 11th, 2008 was the three year anniversary of this blog! Time flies when you're bloggin' I guess. I just wanted to send a shout out to all of you who have encouraged me over these past three years with your links, comments, subscriptions and visits. The readers are what make this venture worth while. Thanks to you this blog has matured a great deal since its early days and the best days are yet to come. In celebration of this milestone I wanted to pick three posts from each of the years since 2005 that I think were pretty good. Here goes:

2005:
Why Abstain from Politics? seems timely during this election year and a companion post about Baha'i activism should also be included

Race Unity: A Global Challenge was my response to the series of riots in the suburbs of Paris that year

2006:
The following selections from this year are also timely given what's going on politically in the U.S. right now

The Pursuit of a Pain Free America (one of my all time favorites)

Contradiction, Crisis and the American Mind

The Touchstone of Black Leadership

2007:
This was definitely my "race man" year

Racial Moral Relativism

The Baha'i Faith and Black Nationalism

A New Creation: Black Americans

2008: My best year yet in my opinion

Stick, Stones and Fire was a post from the heart prompted by election violence in Kenya

Later in the year I saw human beings literally eating dirt to survive due to the "food crisis". Hunger and Thirst for Righteousness was my response

Poverty: Enemy of Stability was also inspired by evidences of a world spinning out of control

I wonder what Baha'i thoughts the next three years will inspire.
