The Commencement Speeches Commence!
It was delivered by Rev. Joy Carroll Wallace at Goshen College last weekend. Among other things, she said:
My hope today is to equip you with a warning and commission that might be helpful as you set out on this journey, as you begin the next chapter of your lives. So I want to tell you a story.Read the rest. Print it. Save it. Share it. It's worth it.
One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. He said, "My son, the battle is between two 'wolves' inside us all. One is Evil. It is anger, fear, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego. The other one is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith."
The grandson thought about this for few minutes and then he looked up at his grandfather and asked: "Which wolf wins?" The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one you feed. The one you feed."
