Stand With Ukraine

We insulate ourselves in so many ways.

We defer, deflect, deny. It’s “not our problem” when others suffer; we use difference as a justification and distance as a buffer.

All of this is armor, as we try to protect ourselves from acknowledging fear and feeling pain.

But we all share the same needs: autonomy, belonging, safety, to love and be loved.

We can summon the courage to open our hearts and lean into our shared vulnerability, offering empathy and compassion to those in need.

We can tap into our truth: we are inextricably connected.
