Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.
Robert Kennedy, South Africa 1966.

These Are A Part of Me

Pebble

A simple pebble
of love
cast into the pool
of mind,
sends ripples 
of feeling
from center
to edge
growing
widening
repeating
a meaning
catching
the light
and the shadow
making music
of motion

John D. Engle, Jr.
