The road to peace
“There are few pursuits more rewarding than lifting the hearts of your fellow man.
When you lift up someone who has fallen down, you show them you care.
When you help lift the load off of someone in need, you show them they count.
When you help lift the burden off of a person going through a tough time,
you show them a way out, a way up, and a way off of the low road once and for all.
When you constantly search for the best in others, something amazing occurs.
You find it. And you help them discover it as well.
When you persistently seek the goodness in those all around you,
something remarkable takes place.
That goodness is revealed to everyone around.
When you continually lift others off of the low road and into a happier and healthier place,
something incredible happens.
You discover a peace between you that words can scarcely describe
– a peace that only the high road provides.”
– Martin Luther King
