“I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the water to create many ripples.”
~Mother Teresa of Calcutta
“Each time a person stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, these ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.”
~Robert F. Kennedy
I am posting with Boston and the victims of the evil act in my thoughts and prayers. It is my hope that the perpetrator(s) of the murderous act be brought to justice.
Each of our little deeds and thoughts – good or bad – affects those around us. Amid our daily struggles, may the God-given goodness in each of us triumph over our ill motives and desires. Let not our light be dimmed by the tragedy around us. It is precisely in moments like this that we are called to rise above our self-interests and recognize in each person a brother/sister. May God bless us all.
