One tree can start a forest, One bird can herald spring, One smile can begin a friendship, One hand can lift a soul, One star can guide a ship at sea, One word can frame the goal, One vote can change the nation, One sunbeam can light a room, One candle can wipe out darkness, One laugh can conquer gloom, One hope can raise our spirits, One touch can show you care, One voice can wake up everybody, One life can make the difference. Be that One! Happy Thursday Michele Bell, PIO

The other is good – he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity
