I am reading Tattoos on the Heart with tears in my eyes, every chapter. Maybe it’s because I’m fifty-five. Maybe it’s because I know humankind can be kind. Maybe it’s one of those exceedingly rare stories of raising hearts into hope in the midst of a seemingly hopeless situation. Or maybe I just love bread.
My favorite quote so far: “Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It’s a covenant between equals.”
And here are two great videos of the Homeboy Industries. A documentary is in the works.
