"Walden Pond and Civil Disobedience"
 
I was in the Boston area last month when the 200th birthday of American author Henry David Thoreau was celebrated. Thoreau, of course, is most famous for his book "On Walden Pond", a journal of his two years living on its banks in the New England woods. He was also a leader in the Transcendentalist movement along with fellow writers Ralph Waldo Emerson and Walt Whitman.

Just a Thought....


Islam, Judaism, and Christianity remind us that civilizations survive

  • not by strength but by how they respond to the weak;
  • not by wealth but by the care they show for the poor;
  • not by power but by their concern for the powerless.

    The ironic yet utterly human lesson of history is that
    what renders a culture invulnerable is the compassion it shows to the vulnerable.

    The ultimate value we should be concerned to maximize is human dignity—the dignity of all human beings, equally, as children of the creative, redeeming God.
