This is a post for Jonny. But it’s also a post for me, and for you. Maybe it’s as much for me as it is for Jonny.

We all need reminded that we matter. That your story matters. Your life matters.

There will be days when it doesn’t feel like that’s true. When the darkness crowds in and overwhelms us. Harvey Dent taught us that the night is darkest before the dawn. I try to remember those words when the darkness falls for me.

Because hope is real.

Healing is possible.

It might be a long, painful journey, but it is possible.
