Kierkegaard on Beauty

Adversity draws men together and produces

beauty and harmony in life’s relationships,

just as the cold of winter produces ice-flowers

on the window panes, which vanish with the warmth.

Soren Kierkegaard

     There have been far fewer pictures on the Internet of people helping people with Irma than there were with Harvey. It’s probably because there has been such a huge problem with power and Internet capabilities. I have heard of many beautiful stories about people graciously offering their homes to strangers in need, repairing a neighbor’s generator, and sharing the precious gas supplies in the early aftermath, but have found almost no pictures. Lots of hard work to be done, but, in many situations, people have graciously risen to demands of the situation with a generosity that inspires us all.
