Bedding with mosquitos

Thanks for publishing the Dalai Lama’s optimistic words regarding our human interconnectedness, compassion and the prospects for peace in our troubled world (Monday, Oct. 22).

His statement near the end was: “If you feel that you cannot have much of an effect, the next person may also become discouraged, and a great opportunity will have been lost.”

That idea also is embodied in the concept held by many of those working for greater social justice in our country: “If you feel you’re too small to ever be effective, you’ve never been in bed with a mosquito!”
