Gwendolyn Brooks once said:”We are each other’s harvest; we are each other’s business; we are each other’s magnitude and bond.”
These are the words that play over and over again in my mind whenever i read texts covering the death of innocent people, the EU referendum and the mockery that some groups of people are making out of politics- and ultimately out of people’s lives.
Now more than ever is the time to build nests of comfort and feedback loops so we can at least try to become a culture of different people who empower each other.
Whatever the outcome of your efforts, it is important to remember that you can be the source of positivity or negativity and the first person this choice will affect is you. And you are very important if not to “anyone” apparent then at least to society an. But it all begins with you and your purpose.
