All too much too late. And an acknowledgement that it was indeed the Liberian people who ended ebola in their country, not the international community response.
Two inspirational readings from the retreat speak so clearly to my reason for being on the planet:
Seek to do brave and lovely things which are left undone by the majority of people. Give gifts of love and peace to those whom others pass by.
As the vital rays of the sun nurture all, so must you spread the rays of hope in the hearts of the poor and forsaken, kindle courage in the hearts of the despondent, and light a new strength in the hearts of those who think they are failures. Paramahansa Yogananda
May we all join hands and make these thoughts of compassion a reality. With love and gratitude ~ Deborah
