How much time do we take to listen to someone else?  To hear that person's story?  To see the world through his/her/their eyes?

"Listen to the sound of your feet-

the sound of all of us

the sound of me."

"Look to the shining sun.

It is for you and all of us -

it is for me."

We all share the stars, the sun, the air we breathe.  We are connected to each other through our stories and through our hearts.

Above all we need to listen with our hearts.  The heart can hear everything and it can hold the darkness and the light.

We are all connected and we share one world.
