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

Making up Lost Ground, Walking with Sabina from Vicenza to Montecchio Precalcino

As Sabina and Roberto had picked us up in Vicenza to take us to their village, I later had to go back to walk the distance. Sabina decided to walk with me. Here she is at the spot in Vicenza where she had picked Gianni and I up.

The Piazza in Vicenza

North of Vicenza, a NATO base

As Sabina grew up in this area, she was my guide. She carried my bag and sign for much of the distance.

In a village called Dueville, I present one of the two Villas

And here it is

Sabina, marching like a soldier for peace

After 15 kilometers, the return to Montecchio Precalcino
