With the events that are transpiring in the world, there seems to be no end in sight, the greatest feat that can be overcome is the insecurity that creeps out of the darkness. The uncertainty can either do one of two things, it may cripple the being or allow it to grow. Like a seed planted if it is watered it will flourish into beautiful presence or if left unwanted and unwatered it will diminish. To feed off of the anxiety that is caused by anger and despair the crippling effects will smother us. To recognize that in fact that...
I send my deepest heartfelt condolences to those who have lost a loved one by the act of SUICIDE. Not just yesterday, but for days gone by.
