              Thomas Merton, the Trappist monk and social activist, once said that as he grew older he came to understand that it was not ideas that change the world but Simple gestures of Love given to the people around you, and often to those you feel most at odds with.  He said that in order to save the world you must Serve the people in your life. "You gradually struggle less and less for an idea," Merton wrote, and more and more for specific people.  In the end, it is the Reality of Personal Relationship that saves everything."
