Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.
- Viktor E. Frankl

Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.This world in arms in not spending money alone.It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children.
Take bread away from me, if you wish,take air away, butdo not take from me your laughter.
I want to see you.Know your voice.Recognize you when youfirst come 'round the corner.
