We are a species fixated with ‘labels…Christian, Hindu, Jew, Muslim, Black, White, Gay or Straight…and following the wake of the recent Brussels attack, I can say with certainty that these labels only serve to become more and more divisive.

As with life in general, it takes a complete sense of ruin in order to rebuild. And whether it’s a nation or one human, ruin is always a road to transformation.
If we expect to rise from the ashes, we sometimes have to learn to live with the burn.
