“Not a grave of those slaughtered ones,

But is growing its seed of freedom,
In its turn to bear seed,
Which the winds carry afar and resow,
And the rains nourish.”

Walt Whitman, “Resurgemus”

The next Buddha may take the form of a community, a community practicing understanding and loving kindness, a community practicing mindful living. And the practice can be carried out as a group, as a city, as a nation. —Thich Nhat Hanh

It is from numberless, diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. 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 eachother 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.
