The author of today’s quote was not an American, but none of us, regardless of nationality, should hold hatred or bitterness in our hearts.
Edith Louisa Cavell was a British nurse. During World War I, Cavell saved the lives of soldiers from both sides without discrimination and helped some 200 Allied soldiers escape from German-occupied Belgium. She was arrested under martial law and accused of treason. Cavell was found guilty by a court-martial and sentenced to death. Despite international pressure for mercy, she was shot by a German firing squad on October 12, 1915, at age 49. Her execution received worldwide condemnation.
The night before her execution is when she said, “Patriotism is not enough. I must have no hatred or bitterness towards anyone.”
Sparks is the creation of Annie from McGuffy’s Reader. Sparks began as a blog hop, created by our friend. Annie stated when she began Sparks, “I believe we are meant to be lights in this world. If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. Together, we can light up the entire world.”
Too much birthday celebrating?
