I love people

Screen Shot 2016-02-14 at 6.39.49 PM

On this Valentines day, 2016—I would like to send a love letter to everyone. Absolutely EVERYONE.

Why? Well, because I love people. And I mean that from the bottom of my heart.

I know a lot of folks who feel dogs might be better than us humans, but not me. Dogs are great but people are my favorite animals of all. Nothing is more interesting to me than other people.

That doesn’t mean I turn a blind eye to the fact that we, as a species, do a lot of shitty things. To the planet, other creatures and each other.

The thing is, I believe in us. People are capable of incredible empathy, kindness, generosity, grace. We can be so smart, creative and industrious. Brave, courageous, strong and tender. Altruistic. Most of us care deeply about each other, and that is perhaps our greatest ability of all—love.
