There are people in the word who, like precious gems, became what they are today under the most difficult of circumstances. .
Diamonds walk among us. Made from the same material... they just had to go through the stress and the pressure that would either break them, or transform them into something stronger. .
That’s not to say all diamonds are perfect. They are all battle scarred, they just hide it so well. Each imperfection... characteristic even... carries a heavy story of how they became. .
For example, a diamond with a green hue has absorbed radiation to make it so. If you apply heat to these diamonds, they glow. .
These are the souls that light the way.
I am forever humbled, forever grateful and least of all, forever in awe.
