Thought for the Week:

"It's the action, not the fruit of the action, that's important.  You have to do the right thing.

It may not be in your power, may not be in your time, that there will be any fruit,

but that doesn't mean you stop doing the right thing.

You may never know what results come from your action,

but if you do nothing, there will be no result".(Gandhi)
