A pictorial chronicle of a cry and call to responsibility. Of lives touched by gentle acts of kindness and compassion given with love and generosity of spirit by those sometimes perceived by the receiver, to be the enemy.
"Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, 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 that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance." Robert Kennedy.
"We are here to make a difference, to mend the fractures of the world, a day at a time, an act at a time for as long as it takes to make it a place of justice and compassion where the lonely are not alone, the poor are not without help , the cry of the vulnerable is heeded and those who are wronged are heard." Chief Rabbi, Lord Jonathan Sacks.
Our Kids climbed barbed wire and fences to receive help. What barrier are you willing to climb in order to be part of the giving that builds sustainable solutions? Here at Springs of Hope Foundation we believe in turning tragedy into triumph and predicament into achievement. But first comes the fence. We cross it and then we become what we do. We learn kindness by making kind deeds. We can not give that which we do not live.
There is a saying written by one of the Rabbis...so simple it kind of hurts and makes you go " ouch" . " When I die and go to the world to come, they will not ask me " Zusya, why were you not the prophet Moses?" They will ask me, " Zusya, why were you not Zusya?" ( Rabbi Zusya of Hanipol)
Were you NOT you?
