When the dust settles and the pages of history are written, it will not be the angry defenders of intolerance who have made the difference. The reward will go to those who dared step outside the safety of their privacy, in order to expose and rout the prevailing prejudices. John Shelby Spong
Hold on to what is good,
Even if it’s a handful of earth.
Hold on to what you believe,
Even if it’s a tree that stands by itself.
Hold on to what you must do,
Even if it’s a long way from here.
Hold on to your life,
Even if it’s easier to let go.
Hold on to my hand,
Even if someday I’ll be gone away from you.
A Pueblo Indian Prayer
There is a road in the hearts of all of us, hidden and seldom traveled,which leads to an unknown, secret place. Step outside and find it.
