SOME THINGS WE TALK ABOUT:
“When we take action towards the injustices of the world that’s the ultimate antidote to cynicism and apathy. “
I see a lot of pain, what can I do?
t takes all of us to move the needle.
We talk about how it’s important to know what is going on in the world. Reading the news and being impacted by stories that might not affect us personally, but should affect us.
How can we be affected by others stories and also be a solution to their injustices.
It’s complicated but also simple.
It’s ok, to let these stories break your heart.
“You cannot selectively numb emotion.” Brene Brown
