“I believe”

I believe that ‘shit happens’ and that sometimes we can make fertilizer. Sometimes it just stinks.

I believe in friendship, loyalty, faith, and critical thinking.

I believe in honesty, dialogue, and heartache.

I believe in education: in school and in backyards; in living rooms and board rooms.

I believe in believing in God, even when I don’t or can’t.

I believe in healing, in patience, in permission, and in moderation.

I believe in those who believe in me.
