Thought for the Day – December 15th

12-15

“Quid dulcius hominum generi ab natura datum est quam sui cuique liberi?”
Cicero, Marcus Tullius. Speech. Post Reditum Ad Quirites. 57 B.C.

After yesterday’s horrible event, it has been difficult finding a sentiment that would be proper and fitting and yet still hold to the theme of “giving” or “charity”. I think Cicero’s statement here is somewhat fitting without being…too “sweet” or sentimental. It is appropriate. It is especially appropriate for those of who who still have our children today. Let us not forget what a gift they are.
