“Whether you’re a researcher unlocking the cure for cancer or a guy sweeping the street, you have known hope and fear, affection and loss, wanting and disappointment. You have looked out at the world and tried to make sense of it, you have coped with the unique set of problems you were born into, you have endured pain. Over the years you’ve tried many strategies to help you feel better in the face of pain. Some of your strategies have worked, some haven’t. But it doesn’t matter. You are just trying to live. And in spite of all that is hard in life, you are still trying. This is your worth, your humanness.” – McKay and Fanning
