The power of example

Example is Not the Main Thing in Influencing Others. It is the Only Thing. Albert Schweitzer (1875 - 1965)

Remember this?

Seventh of 33 men rescued from Chilean mine | StarNewsOnline.com: "SAN JOSE MINE, Chile - To hugs, cheers and tears, rescuers using a missile-like escape capsule began pulling 33 men one by one to fresh air and freedom at last early Wednesday, 69 days after they were trapped in a collapsed mine a half-mile underground."

An example for all the world? Sure. Just imagine that every group in peril is buried at twice the depth of the Empire State Building and must be rescued. We have this glowing example from Chile.

We need to envision it in relation to the women and girls buried in East Congo, the nonviolent prisoners languishing in cells serving draconian sentences and soldiers of any nation placed in harm's way because leaders lacked the imagination to see life as a rescue operation not a war.
