It's been a busy summer and I have not been able to post as often as I would have liked but here is a little something from Helen Keller that nicely balances realism with responsibility. Our world continues to be shaken by terrorist type events and in the face of such hatred and violence we can feel very small and helpless. This quotation reminds us that while there are many things we cannot do, there is always something we can do to make a difference. Passivity is never an option. We must speak the truth in love and refuse to be bullied by human prejudice and ignorance.
