We live in a society that doesn’t reward kindness. Where intelligence, wealth, talent, and appearance are appreciated more than integrity, morality, and ethics. I know that a lot of us are fed up with superficiality, with choosing conflict over cooperation, with selfishness, and with conformity.

 I welcome you to a place where no one is left behind. Where you can express your opinions and not be judged. Where we live to learn, not to succeed or fail. Where we argue to come to an understanding, rather than to separate. Where we find that wealth is determined by the amount of heart, hard work, and perseverance you live with, not the amount of money. We believe the world is a better place when everyone is included, when no one is left behind, and no one is struggling to survive.

The more we understand each other, the better chance we have to live in peace. We will share stories, interviews, articles about people from all walks of life: health care workers, dietitians, single mothers, college students, artists etc. We hope that by figuring out the motives and struggles of others, we will realize how connected we all truly are.

We all want the same things: to be accepted for who we are, to be loved, and to not be alone. We believe that if we help each other find those things, rather than tearing people down and leaving people out on our journey to find them for ourselves, we can create a more enlightened world and it starts by recognizing that everybody’s life and everybody’s stories have value.
