I had a dream with the world I shared it that we’d embrace diversity not run scared of it please explain it to me I have nothing but time how ending the lives of each other honors the memory of mine I fought without fists without anger or spite I called for equality and love not to spill into the streets and fight I reached out in peace extended my hand hoping to set an example that would echo throughout the land yet still we fight we hate and we label to see beyond the color of skin we seem hopelessly unable I left this earth many years ago but I still watch from above as my dream remains just that in the absence of brotherly love we must come together as one recognize hatred as cowardice that labeling a man by his skin is a terrible injustice it’s never too late to right this wrong when we walk and live hand in hand that will be my victory song

Serendipity is a happy accident. It’s also a pretty good John Cusack movie.
When I think of Serendipity I think of an event that occurs over a short period of time that isn’t ironic yet it’s profound.
I like to think I have an example of Serendipity that occurred over a longer period of time.
I dreaded dialysis for most of my adult life and I did almost everything I could to avoid it. How surprised am I at the overall impact on my general well-being; the wonderful nurses that I get to see everyday doing God’s work for the love of the job and not the money; and the effect it’s had on my ability to empathize and relate to those worse off than I. I was already pretty good in the last category but now I’m even better.
It’s a happy accident that I am benefitting from something I once thought was the Ninth gate of Hell.
