“If only we could find acceptance, compassion, and love for each other regardless of religion, race, color, identity, the world would be a better place. We each have a choice of what we choose to focus on and that can make a world of a difference… a different world. How much we give is not a function of how much we have, but how big and open our heart is.” ~ Rupam
