“This is a time of historic opportunity to turn the tide on the diseases and deaths of despair, and to increase well-being for all in America.
Every one of us is touched by the suffering, and every one of us is essential to the solution. In playing our unique roles, we get to bring our pain, our joy, our lived experience, and our diversity as our greatest gifts. As Dr. King reminds us: Everybody can be great, because everybody can serve.
There is no clinical protocol, no community program, no governmental policy, no philanthropic grant (as vitally important as these are) that can substitute for the loving-kindness, compassionate care and radical inclusion that is necessarily at the heart of healing. Let us never confuse the importance of what we must do, with the greater call to who we are and can be.” – Tyler Norris, MDiv, CEO, Well Being Trust
