I have experienced my share of human cruelty in my life. I have experienced things I would not wish on my worst enemy. I’ve watched others hurt my daughter over and over again. Yet, somehow, I still believe in the basic goodness of most people. I believe that most humans just want to find love and happiness. Sometimes we make mistakes and do stupid things in the pursuit of that happiness, but ultimately humans are good.
I believe in the goodness of people, despite what I have been through.
