as waves washing over pebbles
are the days of their lives
as the river runs uncaring to the sea
so have we cared for our fellows

until a precious stone is thrown
and we realize
that stone was our stone
that loss was our loss

No man is an island,
entire of itself…
for I am involved in mankind.
Therefore, send not to know
for whom the bell tolls,
it tolls for thee…

 John Donne

 ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart…and your neighbour as yourself.’ Jesus Christ
