….because helping each other has
made their hearts get bigger. A big
heart is both a clunky and a delicate
thing; it doesn’t protect itself and it
doesn’t hide. It stands out, like a
baby’s fontanel, where you can
see the soul pulse through.
This quote is from, bird by bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life; Anne is talking about students from previous writing classes who are helping her new students. I think it is an appropriate quote for today when we are remembering the events that occurred ten years ago. Let’s all keep helping each other and feel our hearts grow bigger!
