An Incredible Vision

It is so easy to slip into despair if you forget. It is easy to huddle in your sacred corner if you turn away. It is easy to ignore the other, cloaked in cords of fear. But if you just turn and remember the laughter and hugs, that beauty within, those times when a smile from a stranger lit your heart, an incredible vision will appear. Today is not the day to say no, but to affirm a yes. By embracing the light we thus disperse the dark. It is there, waiting only for your encouragement.

Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise!
