And I think the core of that message — you’re not alone, we love you — has to be at every level of how we respond to addicts, socially, politically and individually. For 100 years now, we’ve been singing war songs about addicts. I think all along we should have been singing love songs to them, because the opposite of addiction is not sobriety. The opposite of addiction is connection.

Johann Hari on TEDTalks: Everything you think you know about addiction is wrong 🙂

That’s how I was reminded again that all we need is love. God’s love, for sure, which is shown concretely by us, His children. Thank God for enabling me see this thing and please help me show Your love to anyone You give around me. Amen.

Not an open book. I tell things I want people to know. Even so, I tell them in different viewpoints according to what response I want to get.
