.............. Jim Wallis is a Greenbelt speaker and a major activist in the US.
He is currently on a Bus Tour to stand against poverty ........ as the US spends it's time debating the next Presidential vacancy.
This is a wee out take from his last newsletter .......

"My own son Luke is 6 years old now and in first grade, and I walked up to a class of kids about his size.
A 7-year-old girl was holding a poster she had made that said,

"Every person is sacred. Stop Poverty!"

When I smiled at her, she looked up at me and simply said,
"Thank you for doing this."
That kept me going the rest of the day."

....... out of the mouth of babes ....
