Truly Good

There is nothing more powerful than acting on the impulse of human kindness and putting that action on display. It is the essence of the example of the life of the Mahatma. It is the essence of the example of the life of Martin Luther King or Jesus Christ. When we all act up and do something small but pure the world will absolutely run over with warmth and love and good feeling. Be sure. You can knit hope. You can wrap the cold, bronze effigy of a man dead half a century and warm the living beating hearts of dozens of souls today. I might sit here and feel shame at my own inaction, but I might do something. Thanks for reminding me that I had that choice, Tippy.
