" Here's to the ones who know their 
calling and that it's greater than a 
cubicle or a paycheck will ever be. 
A calling to be a light. 
To be a lantern.
To be a match in the darkness.
A flashlight in the power outage.
A bright star in the sky of a night that lost hope."
~ Hannah Brencher

“Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender, be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly, and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant; they too have their story. Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love – for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment is it perennial as the grass. Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you from misfortune. But do not distress yourself with imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world.”
― Max Ehrmann, Desiderata: A Poem for a Way of Life

The present moment contains past and future. The secret of transformation is in the way we handle this very moment.

Two years ago today, Malala was shot by the Taliban because she was a girl pursuing an education. Today, she is the winner of the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize. 

Thank you for all you do, Malala, and congratulations.
