Helen Luke spoke of the contribution we each must make to any situation in which we find ourselves. She said no gathering would be interesting unless we each brought our interest to it. She went on to say the same was true of trust. We must not wait until someone or something proves to be trustworthy rather we must do our part of giving trust to a person and situation so that trust may be present in the exchanges. -Don Raiche, Christmas Toast 2008 (edited slightly)
