“When we take away from a man his traditional way of life, his customs, his religion, we had better make certain to replace it with something of value.”
This is a quote from Robert Ruark, who wrote about South Africa so poetically. And yet the words ring true for almost anything.
Has anyone taken anything from me?
Have I offered something?
I think yes.
Has it been replaced with something of value?
I cannot express it any clearer.
This will be a short entry this evening, but a deeply felt one. One does so many things to try to make one’s life a better place, and yet one also tries to make other people’s life a better place. One tries to give them something of value.
That is all.
