Quote of the Week

As the days pass, as with all events, tragic and not, new news begin to overshadow those which still need attention.

In light of all that has been going on around the devastating earthquake in Haiti and in combination of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day tomorrow, I thought this was a very fitting quote.

"An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity."

Martin Luther King, Jr.

For anyone interested in helping/donating to the earthquake cause, please visit the American Red Cross website and it will provide you with (legitimate) relief effort links.
