The more I had no doubt

That I was the one out of place

    Are they invaders from space? Or are they just misplaced? Our anger can blind us When we need to spread kindness Peace between words and to extend grace.

    That's one way of looking at diversity.

  • Whoaaa, now that was so deep and eye opening!

  • Kelli, I somehow get the feeling that you can make any place yours simply through the strength of your convictions (not to mention your tenacity & talent). Any alien would be proud to consider you their friend, I'm sure.
