And who can argue with the above…only the psychopath’s of our times and times before, would find fault.

Those who provide to each other, whether such providing is in the form of practicing their craft, their talents, the gifts afforded to them – or in humbler terms, affording a family member or loved one a chance to live on, despite all their sufferings – these beautifully ordinary citizens – are, in essence, living for others.
