(Very Short) Essay of the Month: Accepting the Gift

This world is filled with suffering and injustice. Where and when we have the ability we should try to lessen these problems. But in our short time of existence we should also enjoy the great beauty and goodness that is all around us. The wonder of a grain of sand to the expanse of the universe is not a gift to be wasted.  (copyright 2011 Mark W. McGinnis)
