Forty-six years of separation had been caused by the fears and prejudice of others around us. We were two little girls caught in the middle.
Sandy grew up with the teachings of Jesus Christ, and lives by the Golden Rule. She is a beautiful, accepting and tolerant woman who has a heart of gold. I grew up to be a Trance Medium, with a deep belief and wonderment about Christ and all that he stood for, and I too am accepting and tolerant. She has recently told me several times that, in her heart, I have always been her best friend. We desperately look forward to seeing each other again, and I have the feeling I'm going to cry deeply when I hug Sandy again. I can't wait.
Please be very mindful, very careful in the words you say or share in every day life, with your family, friends, or total strangers, on Facebook or other social media. You have no idea how deeply your words might penetrate someone's soul, and permeate their life, their values, and their way of being. Traipse lightly upon this ground of our collective consciousness. Let's plant seeds that grow love and hopefulness for a beautiful tomorrow. Let's do the things that will bring us closer together. Let's listen to one another so as to understand the other perspectives. Let's learn from each other, and through love let us at last find unity in the diversity of our lives.
