|"Flying Free" by 9-yr old Resident Artist|
I want to share a story with you about a person named Justice. Justice is not this person's real name and you'll have to pardon the awkwardness of pronouns in this article because I am not going to reveal whether Justice is male or female for privacy reasons.
The fear that Justice was feeling hit me like a ton of bricks. The fear was paralyzing him/her. Justice, knew in his/her mind that I was a "safe" person to talk to, his/her friends had vouched for me, but Justice still had to overcome this fear.
I am so excited about this aspect of this story. One person. Just one person! Do you see how valuable you are? And I also want to give a shout-out to that dear friend who has stood beside you, showing you unconditional love, grace and genuine compassion.
