“I do not know the answer to the violence, evil and darkness in the world but I do know the response.
It is your warm, unexpected smile as you pass a stranger on the street. It is speaking up and standing up for those who are being discriminated against and letting them know we are much more alike than we are different. And it’s offering not only a kind word but a warm hand to those struggling to find their way, earn a living, feed their children and make a better life.
The response to darkness is your compassion, your kindness, your love and the very light of your heart and soul. As dark as it may get, always remember that you are of the light and the light will always, always prevail.”
Paul S Boynton
