Coincidences are such strange things

Monday, August 22nd, 2011

just saw this on the Sacred Space website:


Thankfulness is a wonderful gift. It arises in people’s hearts when they can look back and see how their lives have been enriched, by parents, or children, a spouse or faithful friend, or other good people. Thankfulness may be delayed, indeed, and can only come after much darkness and struggle, when sunbeams and rays of light have shone through – when, despite what has been painful and difficult, I can now see those sunbeams,


It reminded me of my recent post reflections. Coincidences are such strange things.

Those that are last

william Cooper – An An inspirational Australian

Saturday, August 20th, 2011

Every once in awhile I come acrosss someone who inspires me. Back in December I read the story of an Aboriginal activist, William Cooper who in the 1930s less than a month after Kristallnacht, the night of ransacking of Jewish shops and homes across Nazi Germany, led a march from his home in the Melbourne suburb of Footscray to the German consulate to denounce the ”cruel persecution of the Jewish people by the Nazi government of Germany”. Mr Cooper hasbeen hnoured by the Museum of Yad Vashem. What inspires meespecially about MrCooper is that at the time Aboriginal people were not included in the Census, andwould not be  until 1967. So here’s a man persecuted in his owb land (of 50,000 yearsstanding), who took a`stand againstthepersecution of another people. That gave me something to think about.
