The enormity of our world's needs are overwhelming, and without a compassionate heart, distressing news can appear to be just black and white. Hopefully, by raising a few of these intractable issues here would encourage us to pray, and if necessary, to act.
The Seagull and the Duck.

Seen as a seagull and a duck, these nebulae are not the only cosmic clouds to evoke images of flight, spanning almost 7 degrees across planet Earth's night sky toward the constellation Canis Major. The expansive Seagull (centre) is itself composed of two major catalogued emission nebulae. Brighter NGC 2327 forms the head with the more diffuse IC 2177 as the wings and body. Impressively, the Seagull's wingspan would correspond to about 250 light-years at the nebula's estimated distance of 3,800 light-years. At the lower right, the Duck appears much more compact and would span only about 50 light-years given its 15,000 light-year distance estimate. Blown by energetic winds from an extremely massive, hot star near its centre, the Duck nebula is catalogued as NGC 2359.
Adivasi carries the specific meaning of being the original and autochthonous inhabitants of a given region. It is a modern Sanskrit word specifically coined for that purpose in the 1930s, from ādi 'beginning, origin' and vāsin 'dweller,' thus literally meaning ‘original inhabitant’. It is mainly used for the ethnic minorities in Andhra Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Gujarat, Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Odisha, West Bengal and some north-eastern states, and the Andaman and Nicobar Islands.
The flag of Laos consists of three horizontal stripes, with the middle stripe in blue being twice the height of the top and bottom red stripes. In the middle is a white disc, the diameter of the disc is 4⁄5 the height of the blue stripe. The current flag was adopted on 2 December 1975, when it became a socialist state. The white disk in the centre symbolizes the unity of the Lao people under one nation. It is also said to represent a full moon against the Mekong River. The red stripes stand for the blood shed by the Lao people on both banks of the Mekong River in their struggle for freedom and independence from the French, and the blue symbolizes the Mekong River itself, a symbol of the nation's prosperity.

Memories are shockingly unreliable and change over time. Emotions, motivation, cues, context and frequency of use can all affect how accurately you remember something. This includes “flashbulb memories” which occur during traumatic events.
The Lincoln Memorial is an American national monument built to honour the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln, and dedicated in 1922. The architect was Henry Bacon, the designer of the primary statue - Abraham Lincoln, 1920 - was Daniel Chester French, the Lincoln statue was carved by the Piccirilli Brothers, and the painter of the interior murals was Jules Guerin. The building is in the form of a Greek Doric temple and contains a large seated sculpture of Abraham Lincoln and inscriptions of two well-known speeches by Lincoln, "The Gettysburg Address" and his Second Inaugural Address.
Can a man take fire in his bosom, and his clothes not be burned? (Prov 6:27) says the wise Solomon. And I say: can he, who has in his heart the Divine fire of the Holy Spirit burning naked, not be set on fire, not shine and glitter and not take on the radiance of the Deity in the degree of his purification and penetration by fire? For penetration by fire follows upon purification of the heart, and again purification of heart follows upon penetration by fire, that is, inasmuch as the heart is purified, so it receives Divine grace, and again inasmuch as it receives grace, so is it purified.
