No snowflake in an avalanche ever feels responsible. (Voltaire, 18th century French writer)

As I write this, I’m viewing a heavy snowfall through my window. The scene makes Voltaire’s picturesque allusion very real. I certainly don’t expect an avalanche in Indiana today, but I get the picture. And I wonder: when troubles mount around us, how much have I contributed to them? Am I but a small flake, contributing to the landslide of society’s ills? God forbid!

For we are each responsible for our own conduct (Galatians 6:5).
