A good end cannot sanctify evil means; nor must we ever do evil, that good may come of it... We are too ready to retaliate, rather than forgive... And yet we could hurt no man that we believe loves us. Let us try then what love will do: for if men did once see we love them, we should soon find they would not harm us. Force may subdue, but Love gains: and he that forgives first, wins the laurel.
William Penn

Be patterns, be examples in all countries, places, islands, nations wherever you come; that your carriage and life may preach among all sorts of people, and to them; then you will come to walk cheerfully over the world, answering that of God in everyone...
George Fox

At home in Montecchio Precalcino, and a Trip back into the Alps

Sabina and Roberto on the right, with friends signing petitions for peace

Sabina's son, Christopher teaching Gianni a thing or two about cards

Sabina's oldest son, Alessandro, a masterful guitar player

On our third day with Sabina and Roberto, we visited friends of theirs in the Alps

We went for a hike

Our hosts for the day on the left, Silvia and Daniele

Sabina and Roberto
