Most people help one another freely, willingly, to the tune of countless millions of dollars and unknown thousands of hours. The natural giving of oneself to others--this innate kindness, the highest good that flows from somewhere deep within--it seems to me is a hallmark of a natural human decency.
I remember watching a documentary about people helping people--during a natural disaster of some nature--when it sunk in. The kindness that the volunteers showed toward others--some total strangers--was as close as I'd ever come to realizing the ultimate statement that love is one of our deepest truths. Love, as a touchstone of virtue, as soul-wisdom, as an unfathomable depth that the soul beholds.
In the long run we know that our Memorial will be marked by our service. Giving serving, sharing, cooperating is what creates our personal light, what makes these touchstone events shine so brilliantly.
