    A Quote I Like...

    After 9/11 when the country was gearing up for war I was in a shop and found a bumper sticker with a quote by Ghandi: "An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind" I bought the bumper sticker & it is on my rear bumper to this day.

    and selfless thing one can offer another human being. It can be as fragile and needy as a newly born infant, or as solid and self-supporting as a granite pillar, yet it is the hands of the recipient that determines its ultimate fate.” ― Mark W Boyer
