“Acceptance doesn’t mean resignation; it means understanding that something is what it is…”
—Michael J. Fox, actor, author, activist
Sometimes, these days appear to be so challenging. It gets tiring watching the arguing or hearing the hype. It can get so overwhelming and so constant that there are times we forget the truth… that we are ALL different, so we are all the same. That when we look closely, and truly “see” with our hearts, differences are realized to be wondrous and spectacular. We are all meant to be celebrated.
We’re All in this Together. So, Let’s Be Nice to Each Other.

Let’s simply accept people for who they are.
Let’s remember our truth.
