“My time in Honduras challenged me to look at both the powerful and the powerless with the same eyes, the same love. To not judge, knowing that judgment causes only more anger, fear, insecurity and defensiveness. Rather to realize that power is not important, nor is money or keeping up appearances. What is important is what comes from the heart, because that is what makes life worth living.”
