We all long to go home to a place many of us have never been. Home is a safe place, a loving place filled with acceptance - something many have not had. Community.

Somewhere there is a place we can speak with compassion without words getting stuck in our throats. Somewhere a circle of hands will open to receive us, eyes will light up as we enter, voices will greet us with kindness. This is community. Community means the strength of joining together to do the work that needs to be done. Arms to hold us when we falter. A circle of healing. A circle of friends. Someplace where we can be free and safe.
