It’s not a lack of things to say as much as a lack of time to say it…

On any day I have a multitude of thoughts, it’s just I don’t always have the time to express it to others.

It’s really hard to express how much I feel we all need to take time out of our lives to create a sense of community by sharing that which makes us who we are, our passions, our triumphs, and our fears.

I know, do as I say, not as I do.

In this time of division and hate, I feel it’s particularly important that we take time to reach our to others and listen, as well as speak. At our core, we’re all very much the same, and want the same things — I’ve learned that through my travels. No matter what the culture, all humans share a connection and a common core which unites us.

It’s sometime hard to listen to ideas which offend you, and sometimes the venue makes exchanging those types of ideas illegal. Respect each other, respect the letter of the law, and respect the spirit of building bridges, not walls.
