Bending Our Stories Towards Love

None of us choose our own stories. We are each born into a life given, offered as gift, whatever its hardships. But not choosing does not mean lacking agency. We may not get to choose our stories, but neither must we sit passively and wait for them to determine us. Communities and individuals can bend their stories toward justice, toward life, toward peace, toward love. This is the meaning of freedom.
