Beginning today treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness and understanding you can muster and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again.  (Og Mandino)

This quote is one by which we should all try to live.  Kudos to Germany for taking in the Syrian refugees. It warmed my heart and brought tears to my eyes to see hundreds welcomed in Germany after the long walk from Budapest. It is heartbreaking to see what these people are going through as they try to flee war strikened Syria. The body of that little boy washed up on a beach after the overcrowded boat that they were in sank is forever etched in my memory. So many have lost their lives trying to escape. I pray that all those who can help will continue to welcome these refugees with open arms and hearts.

    It is amazing what right in front of my door is happening regarding humanity. Austria organized everything to insure the safe transport of the refugees, offered food and beverages, and gave them what they needed for their journey (also a place to rest).I am happy to wittness this!
