Volunteer Travel

 -- Quote of the Day -- 
“An optimist isn’t necessarily a blithe, 
sappy whistler in the dark. 
To be hopeful in bad times is not just foolishly romantic. 
If we remember those times and places where people 
have behaved magnificently, this gives us energy to act 
and at least the possibility of sending this 
spinning top of a world in a different direction.”   

~Howard Zinn
