“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow mindedness…Travel helps us discover we are family after all.” — Mark Twain

“People travel to wonder
at the height of the mountains,
at the huge waves of the seas,
at the long course of the rivers,
at the vast compass of the ocean,
at the circular motion of the stars,
and yet they pass by themselves without wondering.” — St. Augustine

Do these two quotes have anything in common?

Shane is an actual person, who will going to Iraq in August.  I’ve known him since he was child and hope to know him when he’s middle aged.   You might want to keep him in your prayers.

King George vetoes a bill to end the war.

More soldiers will be sent, to die.


King George cannot veto the truth.*

Can he even hear it with his thin, tin ear?

No two friends are the same. Each has his or her own gift for us. When we expect one friend to have all we need, we will always be hypercritical, never completely happy with what he or she does have.

One friend may offer us affection, another may stimulate our minds, another may strengthen our souls. The more able we are to receive the different gifts our friends have to give us, the more able we will be to offer our own unique but limited gifts. Thus, friendships create a beautiful tapestry of love.
