My friend BJ has this quote on her blog today (if you haven't checked her out, please do! http://sweetnothingsbj.blogspot.com/).
These are words which inspire soul searching...
"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing". Edmund Burke
I need to consider these words...
To consider them the next time I turn my head from wrong-doing or read of human injustice or of the simple fact that more people die from drinking unsafe water than do from all forms of violence, including war.
You see, I am as guilty as anyone of doing "nothing". Life is so much more pleasant inside the "bubble" where I like to live. The question is, do I want to live a life of "me, me, me" or do I want to leave a positive imprint on this world prior to making my exit?
I definitely know the answer...now to go out and do something about it.
