    2. So true! I've learned after being diagnosed that life is so unpredictable when it comes to living with a chronic illness. We can't think too far ahead, just need to take it slow and go at our own pace! - Haleemah

  2. β€œIt is from the numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal or acts to improve the lot of others or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.”
    -- Robert Kennedy
