Fellow Catholic’s reflection on Cairo was inspiring

| March 17, 2011 | 0 Comments

I found the article “A Catholic’s reflections on Cairo” [March 3] very inspiring. It calls us to be awake to reality. If one person is aware, it affects our family members and all the people surrounding us at work and community. The article made me want to try.

Our culture has become so numb.  I see it as I work each day managing a salon/spa. Most people are in the compete, compare and take advantage mode.

Two people at the company I work at seemed to really care and step outside themselves to see and understand other people and cultures. I asked them if they were Catholic and went to Catholic grade school. I was right for each of them.

I hope you continue to print articles like this. I find it so supportive on those days when I feel all alone and wondering if anyone is awake to the world. It is so easy to get caught up in our own little worlds.
