“It’s not our differences that divide us; it’s our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences.” ~ Audre Lorde
I keep reading these heartbreaking stories from the last few months. The stories of the brave and beautiful humans who have been hurt and killed. The only way to respond is to focus on our collective humanity and try harder. Do more. Reach out to your neighbor. Make a new friend today. Open your heart and seek out people who are different. Embrace them. Learn from them. Do something good for someone else everyday. Thank the first responders who protect us. Celebrate the people in your community. Be more human. Love with your whole heart. We need each other. We are stronger together.
