ah

" . . . I've been thinking about a.j. muste, who during the vietnam war stood in front of the white house night after night with a candle. one rainy night, a reporter asked him, 'mr. muste, doyou really think you are going to change the policies of this country by standing out here alone at night with a candle?'
'oh,' muste replied, 'I don't do it to change the country. I do it so the country won't change me.' "

Hi Susan--I wanted to give you a heads up about something I’m working on … I’ve been so thrilled with all the new friends, great blogs, and wonderful posts I’ve read over the past 8 months (my short but rewarding blogging career), that I wanted to show an expression of my luv and admiration. Plus, I thought you might be feeling the same way—wanting to spread the luv! Check out the idea at my blog: http://alife-sizecatholicblog.blogspot.com/p/pay-it-forward.html
