Great Quote

Just saw this quote from McLaren on ONE blog:

“People have transforming experiences when they see people face to face, when they meet the people whom we will help. Something happens when you actually encounter people and they stop being a statistic and start being a neighbor.

“If we can give families water, if we can take care of the health of infants, if we can give education to children – especially girls – than we will change not only their lives, but we will change the world.

“You can purchase a certain amount of security with guns. But you have diminishing returns. You have to invest in people around the world.

“We’re not just concerned in our self interest, we are concerned in the interest of other human beings, so we are going to ask the candidates again and again, “What are you going to do about it?
