Humanity at its best

Standard

DonationAt yesterday’s flute recital, I skipped a line in the first movement of the hardest piece we were playing and nearly freaked out both myself and my flute duo partner. Um, never mind the “nearly.” Luckily, it was the kind of piece that no one but the composer and ourselves could distinguish any trouble, and we were able to get back together. We had a good turnout, and took up a collection for Catholic Relief Services’ disaster relief. In this envelope, preparing to wing its way to Maryland, is $850. The generosity shown by the people who attended yesterday blows me away. The news this morning is filled with lives wrecked by gunfire and leaders apparently trying to taunt each other into world annihilation, but the contents of that envelope are a reminder that humanity is made for goodness.

    Thanks so much for posting the video! Beatiful! Would have loved to be at the concert, but am in St. Louis, so didn’t make it. Glad it went well for you!

    Jim and I couldn’t make it but we sent some friends. They thought you and the others were truly outstanding! They want to be sure I tell them when you have another recital!
