Thursday Thinking and Inking - Relief

All Aboard the Meme Express – Thursday, January 21, 2010

Humanitarian aid organizations are rallying support for post-earthquake relief in Haiti. The American Red Cross, the Salvation Army, World Vision and many other disaster relief agencies are on the scene to offer aid to the Haitian people.

The world is watching, as this earthquake-torn island nation seeks to rebuild from the rubble.

Of course, relief may take many forms.

Today, we present out this quotation for Thursday Thinking and Inking at Meme Express.

“Can I see another's woe,
and not be in sorrow too?
Can I see another's grief,
and not seek for kind relief?”
British Artist
(1757 – 1827)

Each Thursday, we offer feature a quotation as inspiration for that day’s prompt.
