In the past few years I have become increasingly overwhelmed by the news cycle. I don’t imagine that this is because the world is becoming more violent, dangerous, or devastated – I think it’s probably been that way all along. Instead I believe my conscious awareness of the injustices of this world has risen. This is probably true for lots of people like me.


Amrita, for a while, talked about wanting to be a dragon – flying above our heads and destroying evil. Her imagination was limitless. This curiosity and creativity was a part of her spirit even when she was having a difficult time. Every day that I spent with her was filled with wonder and laughter. Amrita, our dragon, breathes the fire of passion into our hearts and inspires us in the way she was inspired to imagine the world into being a better place.
