Médecins Sans Frontières is an international, independent, medical humanitarian organisation that delivers emergency aid to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, healthcare exclusion and natural or man-made disasters.
I claim no special authority for inviting people to think about gentleness other than that I am a human being, and I believe it would be good if we all were to speak more openly about the possibilities for gentleness in our lives. I want gentleness to be important in my life. As a value, it helps me be more aware of, and more appreciative of the gentle people in my life. They are my teachers.
