I have learned that it takes a conscious effort to build relationships and Community. I have learned that babies cry, dogs bark, people fight and machines make noise. I have learned that people are not black and white, but gray. I have learned that people need to be heard, but more importantly, understood. I have learned that compassion gives a voice to those that do not feel heard. I have learned that perception is more important than reality and that taking the time to listen and educate bridges the gap between those two concepts.
I found it a blessing, and an honor, to be given an opportunity, on a daily basis, to touch the lives of so many people and to hopefully be a positive force in their lives, even in the smallest of ways.
