“We all go through challenges — some you can see, most you can’t. Society is increasingly placing people in silos based on biases and ideologies. We must look past the surface and be confronted with the truth that none of us are what you can see. There’s more to us than that, and we’re all dealing with things that you cannot see. So living a life free of judgment allows all of us to share those experiences together and have a totally different perspective. But we can do something better than that. With compassion, courage and understanding, we can walk side by side and support one another, and think about how society can change if we all do that instead of judging on only what you can see.” (Michele L. Sullivan)
Wishing you peace and wellbeing as you walk side by side and support others.
