And who can argue with the above…only the psychopath’s of our times and times before, would find fault.
Those who provide to each other, whether such providing is in the form of practicing their craft, their talents, the gifts afforded to them – or in humbler terms, affording a family member or loved one a chance to live on, despite all their sufferings – these beautifully ordinary citizens – are, in essence, living for others.
The humble Syrian Herbal Medicine Man, highlighted in the short clip below, provided to us from the outstanding correspondent and reporter, Eva Bartlett, who is actually on the ground in Syria – providing the truth of what is going happening there – her excellent website, for those who dare to step outside the corporate media lies and propaganda, can be viewed here” – tells us of what real life is all about for the ordinary citizen;
