Care of my soul is prioritized so that I might rightfully care for the souls of others. We are our brothers keeper. When one rises, we all rise. Spiritual discipline, mindfulness, and exercise are practices which keep me grounded.
Systemic injustice exists in every sphere of society. Gaps are widening across socioeconomic lines. I believe WE are the ones we’re waiting for. Let’s get to work.
