We've been witnessing the worst of humanity that has produced an overwhelming reaction enhancing the best of humanity.
Like so many, I've watched the plight of those refugees fleeing from the unimaginable warring strife of Syria. I've been moved to tears from the moral impact of that little boy lying dead on a beach in Bodrum, Turkey.
There have also been tears of hopeful joy. Hopeful joy as I witnessed the scenes in Austria and Germany as they welcomed the refugees with gifts, with hugs, with warm handshakes.
This could be the start of a worldwide reaction to make this fragile, beleaguered planet the better place so many of us would dare to dream.
I'm blessed and I know, in my own small yet significant way, that I can truly make a difference.....
