“Life is full of opportunities and choices...”

“Life is full of opportunities and choices, no matter who you are, what you do, or where you live. Starting your own journey from Me to We can be as simple as picking up the morning newspaper. When we spoke with Archbishop Desmond Tutu, who received a Nobel Peace Prize for helping to bring peace and reconciliation to South Africa after the fall of apartheid, he called the morning paper “God’s prayer list delivered straight to my door.” At first, we were surprised: what with the current state of the world, the morning news can make for difficult reading! But for the Archbishop, the paper’s stories about local and global issues offer a menu of issues to choose from—and a map of possibilities for change. We have never forgotten his comment, because it helped us to truly see that opportunities all around us.”
