How do we ease this suffering? Is this a problem for the Middle East or a problem for humanity? Is inaction even an option?

“On my return to New Zealand, I pick up Finn. He feels heavier than he did before. Somewhere, deep in my consciousness, I feel as if I’m carrying the weight of Salah and Ali too. Every child, surely, has the right to live in a world where there is food, warmth and security. And surely humanity should strive to help out however it can.”

– New Zealand journalist, Rachel Smallie

“What we do for ourselves dies with us. What we do for others and the world, is and remains immortal.”

– Albert Pine

“Few (of us) will have the greatness to bend history itself, but each of us can work to change a small portion of events. It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man (or woman) stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, (she or) he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.”
– the powerful and greatly inspiring words of Robert F. Kennedy (with my little insertions in brackets)
