What more hopeful thing can there be
Than a new generation of people to care for our society?
Our summer table offers more than food and temperate air.

A weekend of new friends, new horizons.
One dinner guest is getting a degree in human rights.
A breakfast visitor is teaching animal welfare to aspiring veterinarians.

So all of us should sleep better
Soothed by fresh air and sunshine
And evidence that the world has friends.
