Thoughts on Egypt

The violence in one of the world’s oldest civilizations saddens me.  I agree completely with Gandhi when he said:  “Violence begets violence.”  But I believe the opposite is true also, kindness begets kindness.
    I have the following “bulletin board” material by my desk;
    Three things in human life are important:
    the first one is to be kind; the second is to
    be kind; and the third is to be kind.
                      -Henry James, American Author (1843-1916)
The way out in Egypt is through the kindness of its people–all its people.
