Life is hard for those with mental health issues wanting to make the world a better place for others like them. There’s the problem of not being thought equal to others – the problem of being looked down on. Is there any hope at all for people like that to be heard? Any chance of having our voices count like others’ voices count?

I pray for a time when we will be seen as the human beings we are, deserving respect and opportunities that “normal” people enjoy. I pray for better encouragement to be the best we can be.

Why do I feel like such a loner? Who will join the cry for the equality we deserve? Who will join with me and others to claim the right we all have to be called children of God?

Equal under God.
