Our first featured story from our community:
'As we head into the holidays, I think this message is increasingly important.
When I think back on my year and some of the struggles I’ve faced and those I’ve learned about from those around me, I constantly try to remind myself that everyone is facing something – a family member in the hospital, a friend struggling with depression, an uncertainty about your ability to cover your bills. None of us are immune to challenges and roadblocks no matter how perfect our life appears on social media or in living color. We are all human.
One thing we can all afford at all times is kindness. We don’t know the stories of the store clerks we buy our Christmas presents from and we likely don’t even know the full story of those closest to us.
What I do know is that no matter what each of us is going through, kindness can help to heal.
Whenever possible, choose kindness. It is always…you know, possible.'
