Our Hearts Should Ache...
.-when we hear that someone cannot be treated for a disease because they don’t have health insurance.
-when we hear that someone has died because they couldn’t afford a prescription.
-when someone is shot and killed because of a “stand your ground” law.
-when a woman no longer is thought of as able to make good decisions about their own health.
-when many people are killed because a person is able to buy a weapon that shoots multiple rounds of ammunition.
-when people who are dying are not provided a death with dignity.
-when human services are cut for our brothers and sisters.
-when children are forgotten or dismissed by our institutional systems.
-when a person is judged by the color of one’s skin or who they love, or the level of their income.
-when a person is misunderstood because of mental illness.
