These words of Jesus have always touched me very much: “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” In all circumstances, He wants people to rely on Him. This phrase inspires me: “We must learn to live together as brothers, otherwise we will all die together like fools.” Martin Luther King
