Dear Friends in Moscow,
Greetings from Canada.
Thank you for your initiative in holding a Prayer Vigil and Hunger
Moscow in Solidarity with the People of Chechnya. We read that this
is primarily a problem for Russia, but what is unfolding in Chechnya
the conscience of all humanity.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this troubling time, and we
your concern - not only for Chechen people, but for all those trapped in
conflicts and feeling the agony of inhumanity. We understand the pain
concerns of Russian people confused and worried about crime and
and grieving for loved ones. The evil that men do brings tragedy - and
deepening spiritual crisis.
Here are heartening remembrances from Leo Tolstoy's "Calendar of
"A good life is the only antidote to evil influences." - Leo Tolstoy.
"If you permit your thoughts to be influenced by those of someone else,
is a slavery more shameful than yielding your body." - Leo Tolstoy.
"There is nothing more important than example. It prompts us to do good
deeds that would otherwise seem impossible. If we use dissipated,
passionate or cruel people as examples, it destroys our souls. The
is also true." - Leo Tolstoy.
"Freedom is the greatest privilege; the freedom of a whole nation begins
with the freedom of a single individual. It deserves infinite
respect." - -Hertzen.
"Let us forgive each other - only then will we live in peace." - Leo
Thank you for setting this good example - which I am very glad to learn
about and share.
