Compassion over Selfishness

As we enter the holiday season, many are voicing their wishes for the end of this year and the one to follow.

I want to live in a world where every human being is treated with respect, has the power to directs their own lives, and the tools necessary to reach their full potential. I want this for everyone, regardless of age, class, disabilities, gender, health, race, religion, sexual orientation, etc.

Too many of us feel alone, ignored, and silenced as we struggle to heal and take control over our lives. It doesn’t need to be this way. Each one of us has the power to stand up and speak up for others. Together our voice becomes a power for change.
