Thanks, Kat. I am minded of two wonderful quotes attributed to Gandhi:

A "No" uttered from deepest conviction is better and greater than a  
"Yes" merely uttered to please, or what is worse, to avoid trouble.

It's the action, not the fruit of the action that's important.  You  
have to do the right thing...  You may never know what results come  
from your action.  But if you do nothing, there will be no result.

- Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948)

See you around the fires.
