    So true, people can be very quick to judge, and honestly there is no way to truly know a person based on looks alone. You flowed with such truth here. Wonderful write.

    MyTlita... Welcome to Destee

    I really enjoyed reading this flow.

    Very Profound. Full of meaning. Your right those judging at first glance, and on what is told and percieved are wrong. Depth is hard to take and understand, so many skim across the superficial surface of the real depth another holds and have to give. Afraid that an open mind, and heart will cost them to much ( of their time, life, and effort ) and funds for them are limited in that arena.
