Quote of the Day

"Once we start to see life as giving to others, being at the service of something or someone, a worthy cause, then suddenly we realize that we barely have time enough to do everything we want, that we think is worthwhile and that makes us happy. Take care of everything around us: a flower that might be insignficant to others, putting a smile on somebody's face, offering a hand to a friend in need, reading a book that teaches us something, helping our loved ones with the housework. These are little things that can make you glad at heart, and also, as I've said before, keep us busy and useful. Remember that material things are not the fundamental things."

- Antonio Guerrero, one of the Cuban Five, from a letter to his son Tony from U.S. prison, from the moving and highly-recommended book Letters of Love and Hope
A man who has now had eight years of his life stolen from him by the vindicative, spiteful United States Government, and who has, along with the other four men, now begun his ninth year of unjust imprisonment.
