We have the choice to try for a new world every day, to tell what we know of the truth every day, to take small actions every day. A.L. Kennedy
As some of you know, I'm a retired person but do disaster relief work about six months of each year. Because of that I find myself spending time in new places and new communities on a regular basis. The work isn't glamorous and sometimes it seems like I'm making no progress at all in making things better.
There are thousands of relief workers just like me -behind the scenes, doing their work out of the spotlight, many of them like me closer to 70 than 60 years old.As I grow older I look back at a lot of small actions and feel satisfied that I did what I could.
