The sun rises every day. It does not stop for anyone or anything.
It rises over suffering, laughter, sadness, life and death.
Humans do not have this same obligation. We choose to rise daily physically and mentally. When we rise to the occasion of each new day we spread light just the same, likely not knowing the power of our own light or the extent of its reach.
It is our privilege and our choice to rise. It is also our choice to share our light.
