By Joyce Sequichie Hifler
Have you heard how dreadful the neighbors are these days to ignore another’s plight, and how the world has gone to the dogs because people don’t care? Have you heard how hardened hearts are and how callous and unfeeling the human race has become?
It may be true such things do happen….for we hear about it daily. But it likely is that we hear more about the unusual than the usual.
For have you heard about the builder who laid his own plans aside to help another build his house….and the lady who gave her home and nursing care to someone who had no other place to go. Or the child who found its needs fulfilled in the love of a foster mother.
We may ignore, but we can never erase the love of the human race. The world may abound with sordid happenings; it may revel in senseless activities. But called to help, the greater number will respond without thought of the cost to themselves.
Of these things we hear so little. With these we come in contact every day and accept it as the normal pattern of life….which it is….for each unthinking, infantile mind there are two great thoughtful ones. And the second great Commandment still works its wonders in all our lives.
