really liked it
Read in April, 2009

An encouraging book to read, and one that challenges some of my knee-jerk conservative reactions. I was surprised to find myself drawn to MLK Jr. and Mahatma Gandhi. I am now curious to read something by Leo Tolstoy or John Donne. Finding this poem by GK Chesterton was worth the reading of the entire book:

Here dies another day
During which I have had eyes, ears, hands
And the great world round me;
And with tomorrow begins another
Why am I allowed two?

This book had much to do with suffering. It was given to me by a friend who has since suffered and died due to cancer.
