Dear friends,

Well......the sun indeed has risen - as it has for millions of years. There is comfort in nature's resolve.

I do not know what to think. I know the politics are very complicated. Ultimately it's a factor of the imbalances of resources, power and status.

Even more important is the general lack of love and respect at the most fundamental levels. The burden is on each of us to love and give. Our families, our friends, our neighbors, our employees, strangers. The ability of a world community to live harmoniously can only start with each of us. Little things. Compassion. Understanding. Respect. Love. Sharing. Governments will only act as kind/ethical as does its citizens.

I give bicycles and bike support freely and joyfully because I love bicycles but more importantly because I love people. For many of us on this list - bicycles can be our vehicle to heal ourselves and others. Let us all reach out.

Jill DiMauro
