Thirty years ago, the woman who would become my wife said almost these exact words to me. They changed my life.
I'm still not very good at figuring out how I can help but I do my best to remove the blinders from those around me. Every now and then, I see a light come on in someone's eyes.

She taught us all well.
This was a really great piece. I'm sharing it out to everyone I know.
