We say in our African idiom, 'A person is a person through other persons.' The solitary human being is a contradiction in terms. I need you in order to be me as you need me in order to be you. We are caught up in a delicate network of interconnectedness. I have gifts that you don't, and you have gifts I don't--voila! We are made different so that we may know our need of one another. The completely self-sufficient human being is subhuman. Thus diversity, difference is of the essence of who we are." - Archbishop Desmond Tutu

What a beautiful picture of diversity Archbishop Tutu paints. I am me because you are you. Pretty simple, isn't it?

Ever.

Two Words.

Two words.

Arithmetic and Forward.

Read em. Rinse. Repeat.

You are welcome.

Ice Cream Cookie Cakes

Whore. This word has so much weight, but only if we allow it. A bit of a backstory here. Actually two backstories. The first one involv...
