Another great quote from the Ven. Wuling. I never imagined that in posting things here I would have the opportunity to make contact with so many wonderful people. You can check out her web site here.

and may even wish for retaliation.
but these actions will only prolong our pain,
for to hold resentment in our hearts
only serves to make us feel worse.
