"Every heroic myth will see to it that the hero or heroine must endure a period of her own exile. It's only then, when the way home is completely lost, that she comes into contact with the true medicine of her calling." - Toko-pa Turner (click to watch the video)
"It is the paradoxical nature of grief to lead us to love. There is a seed planted in loss, an evolution made in breaking, a genius found in separation that is rarely apparent in the heart of crisis. But often what looks like deviation is really proliferation, like satellite initiatives born from a group’s dissolution. Leadership is forged in the hearts of those who know exclusion. To them, is given the gift of tenderness which can mentor another through their own isolation."
Matthew Wayne Shepard- he was beaten and tied up to a fence like this... Left to die. Why? Because he was different... Because he was gay. Watch the video in my board and your life will change. Matthew is such an inspiration to me. I just learned about him but he's in my heart forever<3<3
