Slice 2012: 19 of 31

Share your slice then comment on as many other slices as possible.

A little quote from one of my very favorite books, Walk Two Moons by Sharon Creech. I think it is quite appropriate for the middle of Slice 2012.

It seems to me that we can’t explain all the truly awful things in the world like war and murder and brain tumors, and we can’t fix these things, so we look at the frightening things that are closer to us and we magnify them until they burst open. Inside is something that we can manage, something that isn’t as awful as it had a first seemed. It is a relief to discover that although there might be axe murderers and kidnappers in the world, most people seem a lot like us: sometimes afraid and sometimes brave, sometimes cruel and sometimes kind.

—Sharon Creech
