The worst place to build a wall is in your heart. It’s easy to focus on arguing with people and miss seeing their creativity, their uniqueness, and their inner beauty. It’s okay to disagree with people but there is no reason to be unkind to them

Human approval isn’t an accurate measure of ethical behavior. Do what’s right, not what’s popular. True love doesn’t just passively approve of people’s and organizations’ behaviors. It challenges them to be better than they are.

Prenatal care is unfair.
Some get care.
Others they tear
In pieces beyond repair.
