Each story begins with a tale of triumph, determination, and a calling. The culmination of the story ends with validation. When we bear witness to the lives of people who share a part of themselves we gain a deeper understanding of what we are, who we want to become, and how we’ve survived.
There is no greater calling but to share our story. To share our experience. To share our understanding of this human experience. Somehow and in someway we increase the ability for ourselves to become better or worse. With the many steps forward that we take there are ones that are taken backward.
Evil and bad things happen to create balance. The sweetness of love, the glee of happiness would not ever be known if you did not know the darker side. It is from the lessons that we learn to endure the balance. Life will keep throwing things at you regardless so standing still won’t help but living with as much tenacity is the justice.
