What are we thinking about as advocates when we see needless suffering and injustice?
Do we think about the world as we’d like to see it or the evil that needs to change?
I’ve read that this is an important question, and my experience has told me it is.
We’re so quick to forget that we are more interdependent than we often realize.
We breathe each other’s air, the energy of our thoughts penetrating other hearts.
Let me focus on what could be although my heart is heavy with grief when I witness more cruelty.
Let me focus on building bridges and inclusion rather than walls that isolate and divide.
