Indeed, I'm holding you responsible, just as you are holding me responsible, and we are responsible to the whole community, because we've given our words. It is a powerful bond, and something to be taken seriously. Even a small act like this can give others the courage to do it as well - I know, because I've gotten emails from people saying as much!

The importance is not so much in the act itself - that is what is important to ourselves, our lives, our families and our health. But the important part to the community is to keep our word. Promises are the basis of civilization.

Thank you again for the book. The stories in Chapter 8 really blew me away.
