What if we stopped aligning with a team, with a religion, with a country, with a political party, with a mother against a father when there’s been a divorce?
What if we stopped hating those who are different from us and those who have more or less than us?
What if instead we met each other as human being to human being, honoring that we are all doing the best we can,
and that we all have hopes and dreams and doubts and fears
we showed up in the spirit of what’s in our hearts,
instead of what we think we should do based on rules and beliefs and norms?
What would the world be like then?

The girls in this story stepped into what it means to truly win in this game of life we’re all playing together.
