I may be biased, but I think that sick people — especially young sick people — are some of the best people you will ever meet. Now don’t get me wrong, healthy people are great too. But when you’re sick, you understand things that other people might take for granted.
You learn to love every good second, every good minute, of any of those few good days you might have. You don’t fear death because you’ve already stared it straight in the face quite a few times. You know it’s not important to dwell on the little things. You have more important things to worry about.
So as many times as I’ve wished to be normal for even just a day, I’ve appreciated my life, both the good and the bad, so much more as a chronically ill young person that I ever could have as a regular teenager.
Being sick makes you strong. Being sick makes you weak. Being sick gives you insight and knowledge about life as it eats away at your own. Being sick is the greatest blessing in disguise. It is so much more than just having an illness. It’s having your entire life be taken out of your control, and fighting to get it back. And that fight will never end.

We need to remember that boarders aren’t real and ethnicities and culture dont exist and we can’t confine our nationalism to these invisible boarders and instead identify with the world and support all human beings for we all one in the boarders of Earth and nothing separates us.
We decide what race people are, whose from what country, who owns what land etc. Until we start living as one person in one country nothing will change and we will continue to oppress and kill some people in the world while letting others live.
We most lose our entrocentrism and stop being so prideful of ourselves and our “nation” and help our brothers and sisters out through love and compassion

To fully embrace God’s gace you have to challenge yourself to love everything, whether it’s your best friend or your enemies. You have to love every leaf and every ray of light and practice expressing compassion to all beings. Learn. Live. Love.
