“The world is full of suffering. It is also full of overcoming “ – Helen Keller
“Nothing you love is lost. Not really. Things, people–they always go away sooner or later. You can’t hold them anymore than you can hold moonlight. But if they’ve touched you, if they’re inside you, then they’re still yours. The only things you ever really have are the ones you hold inside your heart.” – Bruce Coville
“The most authentic thing about us is our capacity to create, to overcome, to endure, to transform, to love and to be greater than our suffering” – Ben Okri
“Don’t be in a hurry to condemn because he doesn’t do what you do or think as you think or as fast. There was a time when you didn’t know what you know today” – El Hajj Malik el Shabazz (Malcolm x)
Great day, bright people! Today’s Soul Food from the great Malcolm X is a lesson for ALL of us to remember where we came from; remember who we once were; remember what we once knew and what we didn’t know at one time and to keep our minds and our hearts centered on who we are in the now before we jump to the act of condemning a person, a group of people or behavior. Empathy is greater than indifference.
