Piggy Back

I sit on a man's back, choking him and making him carry me, and yet assure myself and others that I am very sorry for him and wish to ease his lot by any means possible, except by getting off his back.

~Leo Tolstoy

    I have been thinking about this post since it first went up and I still cannot decide what it is you're trying to say.

    What this quote meant to me when I read it is that it is easy for me to say, "I want to help the poor, the oppressed, the abused . . ." but what have I actually done to make their lives easier? Am I making a difference in any way or are they just words?
