“Here’s how we count the people who are ready to do right:  ‘One.’  ‘One.’  ‘One.'”
— William Stafford

Feet to stand upright

Feet to stand upright, with compassion

“As long as there is one upright man, as long as there is one compassionate woman, the contagion may spread and the scene is not desolate.  Hope is the one thing left to us in a bad time.”
— E. B. White, Letter to M. Nadeau, March 30, 1973

    What a beautiful butterfly. And what wisdom. I’ve always believed that helping one human person beats a thousand Twitter retweets,but I may have changed my mind. Today, I’m thinking that helping one human person may beat ten thousand social media posts.
