Reflections



"We frail humans are at one time capable of the greatest good and, at the same time, capable of the greatest evil. Change will only come about when each of us takes up the daily struggle ourselves to be more forgiving, compassionate, loving, and above all joyful in the knowledge that, by some miracle of grace, we can change as those around us can change too."

-Mairead Maguire

Ohhhhhhh - today this frail human had no compassion nor love, but would welcome a magic wand to change him around her at the moment!!! A daily struggle? Yes!
