Quote of the week

10 Nov

Put this up in gold, or write it on your heart.

Claire Hatton, whose husband, Christian Redman, was killed in the 2002 attacks, first heard about the execution of his killers at the Coogee memorial yesterday. "I saw a quote by Mahatma Gandhi and it said: ‘The trouble with an eye for an eye is that it makes us all blind’. That’s what I think."

— from the Sydney Morning Herald reporting the execution of three of the Bali bombers.

    Thanks for dropping in, Norma. Yes, it is so obvious isn’t it? But we too often don’t think… Not for lack of being told either.
