Please help out a Senior Shovel their Driveway: New Haven & Greater Areas. This is the note sent by the Leader of: Care New Haven, please call her or contact her if you can help out. Thank you in advance. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Hi Rachel - I'm hoping that Random Acts of Kindness might be interested with some emergency snow removal over the weekend or into Monday if necessary?

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. ~ MLK As the new year has come around, we are in one of the most difficult times in the world around us, in terms of the relationships amongst ourselves, from the communities we live in, to the countries we live in and the world as a whole. Somehow we find ourselves having intolerance in whatever form that might be with our sisters and brothers. On this day when we remember Dr. Martin Luther King that called all of us to action, to not stand by and be silent about things that matter, let us look within ourselves and find a way however small to make a difference in our community, our regions, our states, our country and or the world at large. We are all in this together, and as Dr. MLK says ‘life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’ The time is always right to do what is right and so let us all together commit in some way, to carry each other up and not put each other down, to light the light that drives out darkness, to strive towards equal justice everywhere because injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere, to embrace our sister, our brother our SHE, our HE and all in-between, especially just as we are. As Mahatma Gandhi said “Be the change that you wish to see in the world”, , let us be that change we wish to see in the world. Because in the end: “ The ultimate measure of a man/woman is not where he/she stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he/she stands at times of challenge and controversy”. “In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.” ~ Dr. Martin Luther King It starts with a pebble in the ocean, and together with many other pebbles, it turns into a wave, and next, and then next….. How are you making a difference in your own way in your neighborhood, community, region, state, country and the world at large?
