Below you will find this weeks' arrivals. I hope you'll take a moment to consider the thoughtful words chosen and again, be reminded of the individual difference each one of us can make by not tolerating hatred in any and all parts of our lives.

A very special email arrived this week from a wonderful woman I have known since she was our family's babysitter when my children were young - Colleen Lange. She approached the principal of her daughter's elementary school several months ago with the idea of creating butterflies for the Holocaust Museum Houston. The principal and teachers embraced the idea and in November 2011 in time for Canada's Rememberance Day - each class and each of the 450 students will be creating a butterfly! I am filled with hope to know the messages that will be instilled in these young minds just may be one more ingredient in creating a more peaceful world in the future.
One of the butterflies received this week deserves attention. It was created by a young man - Raymond Ritzau who served two tours of duty in Iraq with the Maryland National Guard. Raymond just recently became a US citizen, and was born in Germany. Thank you Raymond!
And thank you too, to the other participants this week -
The next Butterfly Effect Update will be posted in mid February.
