I strive toward my vision,
while accepting gratefully whatever life serves up.

which is based on my value system of what is right,

Simultaneously, I accept that my vision
is based on only my opinions and prejudices,
and I honor all points of view and value systems,
no matter how different from my own.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Apathy, indifference, not caring...
It may sound insensitive for me to say, "I don't care,"

and I also choose to be indifferent to gossip,
petty complaints, and idle chatter.
About those, I just don't care.

a heightened sense of community.
It draws our chins up and

in the midst of a holiday bustle.
If you are attentive,
you will notice the gentle touch
and will be able to respond. Remember...
There are no small acts of kindness.
Every compassionate act makes large the world.
- Mary Anne Radmacher
