>still thinking…

-

>I just finished reading Same Kind of Different as Me by Ron Hall and Denver Moore. And I can’t think about anything else right now. I’m still in that world. It shouldn’t be an uncommon story, but, sadly, it is extaordinary. Many of my friends have read or are reading it. If you have not or are not, you must. It was very moving and thought-provoking. I think that’s why the statement by O.C. that I posted yesterday was weighing so heavily on my mind. Talk about not being what you were before! Another quote that kept rolling around in my head as I read the book was by Rabbi Heshin (I’m sure I’m misspelling his name – I heard it, I didn’t read it). He said, “Some are guilty, but all are responsible.” As I read Denver’s story of cruelty and unfairness it was obvious who was guilty. And obvious who is responsible. We can make up for/prevent, in whatever way we are able, the damage the guilty cause. If we fail to try, then don’t we move from the “responsible” category to the “guilty”? I’m sure I do everyday as I miss opportunities that are placed right before my eyes. Surely, after reading this book, my eyes are opened, my hands and feet more moveable and my will, God’s.

Oh…and, another quote by the Rabbi, “Your life is the spelling of the answer.” I think that is beautiful and one more thing to think about…
