We all have our adversities, setbacks, and our past histories. We may be proud or embarrassed of our past but what we sometimes overlook is the road to redemption when our paths weren't as paved as we'd like. Every struggle, every tear, every barrier we had to face brought us to where we are standing right now. Some of us may be on the road to redemption and others have yet to embark on that path - stuck in their own vicious cycle. One similarity we all face is at some point we may embark on this path and when we see others who are stuck in their ways, in poverty, in drugs, in abusive cycles - we reach out with a helpful hand to let them know that they have the power to disrupt the cycle. We may be on different paths but we are on the same road, together.
