God is Love





I pass this sign at least twice a week. it is posted outside the
westbury friends school. although this is a quaker school it is open to all children. a few feet from this sign, there is a larger one that reads, save darfur. I find seeing these signs of social conscience very inspiring. when I went to the school's website I was happy to see the Obama family is sending their daughters to a quaker school.
long island is filled with many different people who are free to practice what they believe in. today's post represents part of my world, a place where I am happy to be among such a diverse group of people.

Wonderful photograph, Lily.
Those words are so right. Yes, God is Love: we are milliards on the earth, and He deeply knows us one by one.

There is a great historical Quaker site at the intersection of Shelter Rock Road and Northern Blvd in Manhasset. I remember visiting it on a grade school trip one year. In subsequent years when I worked for minimum wage on the miracle mile, I would drive past there everyday. It always made me smile, thinking back to those days earliest of innocence. Happy Holidays to you and your family.

Morty!

What a progressive school! I think it's great to teach kids social responsibility early on.

that really is admirable...we need a world that is open to the other people and whom else do we start but from the children.
