To Start Living

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.

A Mother's Compelling Veteran's Day Letter

Dear Reader,

This email letter was written by Pat Alviso, a peace activist with Military Families Speak Out, and a mother of a military veteran who is in his 6th tour of duty in U.S. war zones. I think her Veteran's Day letter (received 11/10/17) will move you as it did me:
