Writing Saves Lives

Writing saves lives.

Alone time saves lives.

Connecting saves lives.

Community saves lives.

Permission to be a mess saves lives.

Space to be really honest saves lives.

Not calling the police when people are minding their own business saves lives.

Doing your own inner work saves lives.

Saying “I love you” saves lives.

Saying “I’m sorry” saves lives.

Moral courage saves lives.

Righteous action saves lives.

Art saves lives.

I believe we’re always saving each other, often without knowing it.

As it’s written in the Talmud: “Whoever saves one life, it is as if they have saved the whole world.”

Has someone saved your life lately? Write them a note. Say thank you. Tell them the story. Pay it forward.
