From East to West
It's all been said before, but can you imagine saying to someone with cancer: "Just snap out of it! What's wrong with you?! Why can't you just be a little more normal...tow the line...fit in...try harder, etc?"
You can't. I can't. And yet we do it all the time, in this country, in our cities, even in our own lives.
Mental illness is just that---an illness---and we need to shift our perceptions and reach out a hand to help when we can. God only knows what could be averted; or what kind of a difference we could possibly make in the lives of countless others.
