    Yeah I saw it on the internet. You know when she says “I will be with you”? I got creeped out right there! I will be with you for the rest of my life? Who else claimed to do that for us?

      if there is soul —maybe your grandmother or grandfather didn’t say that, or parents, or people you care about and who care about you

      generosity of spirit goes a long way to empowerment, here or anywhere
      even in the harshest circumstances

      if you don’t believe in supporting others, what’s left
