Feet planted. Deep breath. God is here. There is no question. It is only a matter of allowing myself to see and to feel and to respond…
If we are going to choose sides then we are going to choose the side of love. We are going to choose the side that sits down together to listen and to be heard, to share a meal, even and especially if we are not the same.
