Say a Prayer for Those In Need

L'Aquila, central Italy, near the quake's center, at least 92 people have been reported dead and tens of thousands have been left homeless. Whenever tragedy strikes, be it in our own lives, near our homes or across the world it affects us all, touches our hearts and leaves us with a sense of great loss and helplessness. Today I feel so sad for the people of L'Aquila. My prayers are with them all.

"The whole idea of compassion is based on a keen awareness of the interdependence of all these living beings, which are all part of one another, and all involved in one another. "

if you ever need a helping hand,
it's at the end of your arm,
as you get older,
remember you have another hand:
The first is to help yourself,
the second is to help others.”
