“ For those who feel helpless in the face of the insurmountable suffering, we are still in the early years of the 21st century. There is a time for us to create a better, happier world, but we can’t sit back and expect a miracle. We each have actions we must take, by living our lives meaningfully and in service to our fellow human beings – helping others whenever we can making every effort to do them no harm”. –Dalai Lama
