Your life is not lying in wait in the future like a wild animal or some ominous destiny. Nor is it hidden in the heavens, like a paradise or promise. Nor is it shut up in the cave or the prison of your past. It is here and now; it is what you live and what you do. At the heart of being; at the heart of the present; at the heart of everything – in the great current of life, of reality.

~Pennies for Peace~

Our Earth Scouts group spent a couple months collecting pennies for the Pennies for Peace organization. The girls had fun collecting their pennies! They found some in the car, in the house and even on the street! Dave took a jug to work and some of the guys gave their pennies so it was nice of them to help the girls out. A couple weeks ago all the kids in the group brought in the pennies they'd collected and we had a total of $176.11!! This money will make it possible for six children in Pakistan or Afghanistan to attend school for one year. Amazing what a penny can do!!!
