Thought for Today – 18 September 2008

“Think occasionally of the suffering of which you spare yourself the sight.”
– Albert Schweitzer, Ph.D., M.D. (1875-1965)
Recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize

This quotation brings to mind people who, when confronted with some act of cruelty in which they may be complicit (such as eating body parts or secretions of farmed animals), are quick to exclaim, “Don’t tell me; I don’t want to know!”

"Joyful Curmudgeon"
An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.
