FEW decades ago, men learned to seed the clouds and make it rain, counting themselves full of power (and not insane).  Long before (and since) that time, there have been numerous attempts to change the seasons of the heart—insisting that it’s not natural to care about others. As our young writers once again illustrate with their ice-melting thoughts—love is eternal, incapable of change, of being less than certain, even in the midst of manmade winters.  —Mrs.Chips

“Our job is to love others without stopping to inquire whether they are worthy. That is not our business and, in fact, it is nobody’s business. What we’re asked to do is to love, and this love itself will render both our- selves and our neighbors worthy.” Thomas Merton
