Love is a Rose

I am now reading Why Good Things Happen to Good People by Stephen Post and Jill Neimark. This book is full of scientific research confirming the health and mental benefits of giving. I became interested in this subject after reading that research indicates that givers receive back $3.25 for every $1 they donate.
The preface by Reverend Otis Moss, Jr. says all that needs to be said:
When you are in a desert, plant a rose. Plant a rose of liberation. Plant a rose of peace, a rose of reconciliation, and a rose of faith, hope, and love. And the desert will blossom.
