Spreading the love

AFTER he survived Auschwitz and Dachau, Viktor Frankl wrote the profoundly powerful “Man’s Search for Meaning.’’

In a world of unimaginable brutality, Frankl witnessed starving people sharing their bread. He wrote: “Everything can be taken from a man but one thing … to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.’’

We are meaning-seeking creatures. Hopefully, somewhere along the journey we figure out that meaning is not something we find, it’s something we create. The meaning you create and the contribution you make depend on how much time you spend sitting and how much time you spend sharing your bread.
