Spirit of Selflessness


“It's really a wonder that I haven't dropped all my ideals, because they seem so absurd and impossible to carry out. Yet I keep them, because in spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart.” 

― Anne FrankThe Diary of a Young Girl

As I looked at some of the images from Boston yesterday, I noticed something that I think is important. In image after image I saw people helping each other, risking their own lives rather than running away. I think it is important to focus on that fact. Whether it was a group or a single person responsible for this evil, there were so many other people behaving with kindness and caring, showing goodness and a spirit of selflessness.  I'm holding on to that. I need to look for the light in the darkness.
