      Dear Friends in Moscow,

      Greetings from Canada.

      Thank you for your initiative in holding a Prayer Vigil and Hunger
      Strike in
      Moscow in Solidarity with the People of Chechnya. We read that this
      crisis
      is primarily a problem for Russia, but what is unfolding in Chechnya
      offends
      the conscience of all humanity.

      Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this troubling time, and we
      share
      your concern - not only for Chechen people, but for all those trapped in
      conflicts and feeling the agony of inhumanity. We understand the pain
      and
      concerns of Russian people confused and worried about crime and
      terrorism
      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
      Wisdom":

      "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,
      this
      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
      contrary
      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
      Tolstoy.

      Thank you for setting this good example - which I am very glad to learn
      about and share.
