Your "no" counts - Do you have the courage?

"Victor Frankel, the Jewish Psychiatrist and survivor of German concentration camps, said that in time of crisis people do one of three things: They deny...they despair...or they commit themselves to ask critical questions. Perhaps you and I, being who we are, cannot really do much, but we can at least give the gift of Christian discomfort. By knowing enough to say no, we can make it impossible for anyone to make war easily. And we give others the knowledge it takes to do the same."

Joan Chittister, OSB
