Love is ...

Too often people are engrossed in their own affairs. They only see their own problems, pleasures, space and world.

There always seems to be a surge of relief, gratitude and joy when we find someone who sees beyond their circumstances and steps into the circumstances of others, getting involved, providing help, solutions, benefit, comfort, courage or encouragement.

Life, society and the nature of man can lead everyone to self-focus. Alertness to the condition of others and willingness to step in and act require firm commitments to the inherent value of love and of people and discipline and courage to look at the world with a heart to engage it.
