Universal Campaign,
for heart transplantations...

Some, many people's lives,
are so difficult,
... they can hardly breathe ...
due to emotional trauma
that far exceeds their physicial pain ...
... Walk into tomorrow with grace.
Think of handing out gifts of fabric and lace ...
rather than stones and malice.

It has come about in the last three weeks, that I've been introduced to Brene Brown.  It is my hope, that she, me and you ... will all keep our voices ... inspite of the stone throwers ... more people need to hear you, Brene than people who will kick you in the knee.  Your voice is beautiful Brene Brown.  Keep speaking.  Keep writing.  Keep thinking.  Keep your prestine vulnerability keen.  We need you.
