Relieving the Suffering of Others: ''I Choose Kindness''

"Every skill and talent we possess is a gift that can be used to ease the suffering of others and bring light into their lives." Michael Corthell Each and every one of us has an inherent ability to provide solace and relief to those who are suffering. It is within our capacity to extend a helping hand, offer support, and even facilitate their healing process. However, the very first step towards fulfilling this role as healers is to embark on our own personal journey of self-healing and self-love. To embark on this transformative path, we must embrace a profound realization: loving and healing ourselves is not a solitary endeavor, but rather an interconnected process that involves reaching out to others. It may seem paradoxical, but the key lies in redirecting our focus beyond ourselves and toward assisting others on their own healing journeys. By engaging in acts of compassion, by extending empathy and understanding, we create a domino effect that not only helps others

[Equality] 'I was born as I am...what's your story?'

“Love him and let him love you. Do you think anything else under heaven really matters?”   – James Baldwin In his iconic novel Giovanni’s Room, gay author James Baldwin makes a powerful statement about love. He proclaims that sex and gender don’t matter; all that matters is that two people love each other. Nothing should stand in their way if they have love in their hearts. These words resonated with millions of people who felt like their emotions were invalid because of the gender of the object of their love. With this quote, Baldwin assured them that it didn’t matter because love is love. Equality means more than passing legislation. Equality is won in the hearts and minds of the the people. That's where it really counts.
