CHERRIL DOTY "If you judge people, you have no time to love them." -- Mother Teresa "Every good thing you do, every good thing you say, every good thought you think, vibrates on and on and never ceases." -- Peace Pilgrim I am no Mother Teresa. Nor do I see myself as able to be like the humble, silver-haired woman who was the Peace Pilgrim. She walked across the country seven times between 1953 and her death in 1981, vowing to wander penniless until humans learned to live in love and peace.

Looking around reminds me of a small tent city. It’s sad to say the least. The homeless are strewed about like the wounded on a different battlefield. One that at times holds compassion for them and other times not. Sometimes one person can be greeted politely; the next person may just be urinating in public. As the saying goes: “It only takes one or two to ruin it for all of us.” Each person has a different story to tell; each person deserves his or her own second chance.

The devastation of hurricane Katrina wipes out any other thoughts I might have. My emotions are at the mercy of photographs that have almost no meaning -- the scope of destruction beyond comprehension. How can I make sense of this tragedy on a bright California day? As I watch the repeated images of water pouring through the broken levees, entire neighborhoods submerged to rooftops, and rampant looting of unprotected stores, I find myself increasingly numb.

CATHARINE COOPER What do lobsters and politics and have in common? Hushed whispers echo through the neighborhood, passed from house to house, "Local lobsters have arrived at Cafe Zulu."

Vibrantly colored banners and echoes of prayers filled the Neighborhood Congregational Church on Wednesday with the arrival of Tibetan monks and the start of Tibet Cultural Week. Many parishioners fell into a meditative state as the Gaden Jangtse Tsawa monks recited prayers and chants while seated cross-legged on the floor of the church. Throughout the service they played long, flute-like instruments that bellowed in between chants. Scrolls with bright illustrations and an image of the Dalai Lama sat on the altar behind them.

If we cut ourselves off from our passion, where's our compassion going to come from?" -- Matthew Fox Coretta Scott King has passed away. This gracious, tenacious woman had such wonderful compassion for others. She had an unwavering and nonviolent stance for civil and human rights. There is no doubt about it -- she was a real special lady. We can learn from her compassionate and caring yet firm commitment to the dream of equality and justice for all people. As writer Maya Angelou said on hearing the news, "It's a bleak morning for me and for many people, and yet it's a great morning because we have a chance to look at her and see what she did and who she was."
