JUST A THOUGHT

“A gentleman came to our house and told me: “there is a Hindu family with eight children who have not eaten for some time”. So I took some rice and went to the family. The mother took the rice from me and divided it in two and she went out. She knew the Muslim family next door was hungry too and she had the courage to share.” – Mother Teresa
