3. there should be a place for people like her. I think it will happen in future years

 

because I think the compassionate consciousness of
humanity is on the rise. But it will take time.

Institutions have helped people, but also have become dead
end prisons for too many, with poor nutrition and inadequate care,
abuse in many cases.

It comes down to individuals, especially those who choose
care-giving professions, to raise the bar on treatment of others,
quality of life, understanding the whole person and treating
the whole person, including the broken child inside.

A woman like that with the right care could get well.

Institutions could be wonderful places, if well designed and
maintained, So many of us, left entirely to ourselves -- even with
the best intentions to make changes, usually default to what is
most familiar. A place that provides healthy structure is
probably essential for most people like that. A chance to heal,
a chance to find out who she is without the drugs, the
desperation, and the aloneness.

It's gonna take a lot of love to change the way things are,
to make things work out right.


We have the love. We have the wisdom, we have the
solutions, and the generosity of spirit. It's here, it's already
inside every one of us. We must tap into it, every single one of us.
That's the only way.
