With so much to do to make the world a better place and a New York Fellowship of Reconciliation meeting tonight where we plan to discuss the topic of Forgiveness, I googled and was led to find the perfect auxiliary material for tonight: The Better World Project's forgiveness quotations. What a positive healing site and example of forgiveness and compassion. The website is dedicated to the memory of a beautiful young activist Emily Rachel Silverstein (1989-2009) who was murdered on April 9, 2009. She was studying Arabic and planning to work on peace issues. Read her bio -- and gain sustenance from her life and the people who are making something positive out of her leaving at such a young age:
In her all too brief life, Emily did so many amazing things to try to make her wish for a more peaceful, just and sustainable world come true. Please don't let our Emily be forgotten. Help spread a message of hope for a better world.
They have quotations on Peace there, too, and lots of other good subjects. Spread the word. Share the vision. This is one site that I will be following.
