Here is a final refection:


“I said to the the sun

“Tell me about the big bang”

The sun said

“It hurts to become.””

Most babies are born with a skill that is vital to their survival. Horses are born walking, turtles swimming. But the first thing humans do is cry. 

Our most vital survival skill is asking for help. 

We can choose to pass silently by someone who needs us. Or we can be like the Carpathia, racing in the dark to offer our help, with no guarantee that we will make a difference, just because it’s the kind thing to do.
