2001               fear of flying strikes late in the year      (with many unfortunate consequences...*)
This year with the ugliness coming from so many sides of the various -isms that dominate our world, no sound bites will suffice to capture recent sad events in this annual reminder of our connection to each other. But it is worth remembering a quote from the past from one of us ordinary folks who gave his life hoping to make the world a better place...

Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.
—Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.**
