“Overcoming poverty is not a task of charity, it is an act of justice. Like Slavery and Apartheid, poverty is not natural. It is man-made and it can be overcome and eradicated by the actions of human beings. Sometimes it falls on a generation to be great. YOU can be that great generation. Let your greatness blossom.” ~ Nelson Mandela

~~~~~

To laugh often and much;
to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;

to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

It’s got to happen inside first.” ~ Jim Morrison
