We hurry through life, passing by people every day, but do we really see them? Slow down. Walk in their shoes. See the world through their eyes. I am convinced that if we did this — if we took the time to really listen — we could find something redeeming in people. We could bridge gaps. We could be challenged. We could be encouraged. We could find common ground. The life story of a stranger, no matter how seemingly ordinary or mundane, has the potential to inspire.
