As activists we want to do something to help the world to suffer less but when we’re not peaceful, when we don’t have enough compassion in us, we are unable to do much to help the world.
Every voyage may start with a single step, but that first step is a whopper, particularly when you are one citizen, out of 27 million, trying to influence the attitudes of people you don’t know; on issues you don’t fully understand.
