"Think you can't change the world? Too late, you already have. It was changed for the better the minute you were born. There are more people than you can imagine who will never be the same because they came in contact with you, if only for a fleeting moment." ~Gail Purcell

  5. I love reading things that are simple but so effective. My husband said something to me the other day about this oil spill (I must blog about) and that is the world is an amazing place and it in itself will find a way to cleanse this disaster that is caused by man...it will it just will!
