Please, enlighten us

The leader’s job isn’t to tell us what to do. It’s to remind us who we are, so we can live that story.*
(Bernadette Jiwa)

A year ago I was reflecting on how life is comprised of something from everyone rather than for everyone.

There are many forms of light in the universe, most of them invisible to the human eye – a reminder for me of how everyone sheds a different kind of light for those around them. Perhaps the kind necessary to see something about themselves they hadn’t noticed before, the kind of light that is theirs.

Let there be light.
