     Something To Think About:
    Each time a man stands up for an ideal,
    or acts to improve the lot of others,
    or strikes out against injustice,
    he sends fortha tiny ripple of hope...
    and crossing each other from a milion different
    centers of energy and daring,
    those ripples build a current that can sweep down
    the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.
