An unbelieved truth can hurt a man much more than a lie.  It takes great courage to back truth unacceptable to our times.  There’s a punishment for it, and it’s usually crucifixion.  —John Steinbeck, East of Eden

In every crisis there is a message.  Crises are nature’s way of forcing change — breaking down old structures, shaking loose negative habits so that something new and better can take their place.— Susan L. Taylor

Quote for Today: You Can Say Sorry

You can say sorry a million times, Say “I love you” as much as you want, say whatever you want, whenever you want.  But if you’re not going to prove that the things you say are true, then don’t say anything at all.  Because if you can’t show it, your words…don’t mean a thing.

Today Brandon posted a photo that was disturbing to me.  It was of a young man from Kampala, Uganda.  As you can see the young man is sitting among broken pieces of furniture.  The young man is quoted as saying, ‘The landlord doesn’t care how much furniture you’ve sold this month.’

No one should be homeless.  No one!  And no one should live in fear of becoming homeless.

What makes this photo so distressing to me is that I can’t help.  And I’m sure if I could pay his rent for six months, his landlord would exploit my gift by raising his rent.
