Mend What Is Within Our Reach
Updated: Sep 29
Ours is not the task of fixing the entire world all at once, but of stretching out to mend the part of the world that is within our reach.
Any small, calm thing that one soul can do to help another soul,
to assist some portion of this poor suffering world,
will help immensely.
It is not given to us to know which acts or by whom,
will cause the critical mass to tip toward an enduring good.
What is needed for dramatic change is an accumulation of acts,
