Last night, my twin sister helped me be brave. She walked right over to a friend of ours, who is passing on from this life to the next, and sat next to him. She put her hands on him and talked with him. I didn’t feel so comfortable with this at first. I noticed I felt scared and not sure of how to interact with him. Seeing her behavior and her comfort in connecting with him in that way gave me the courage to do so as well. I want to thank you Laura Aiisha for showing me how to be love and be compassion and be real in the face of transition.
