'What's the worst thing I've stolen?' Probably little pieces of other people's lives.
Where i've either wasted their time
or hurt them in some way.
That's the worst thing you can steal,
the time of other people.
You just can't get that back. . — Chester Bennington .

—— If you wear a hijab, I’ll sit with you on the train.

If you’re trans, I’ll go to the bathroom with you.

If you’re a person with disabilities, I’ll hand you my megaphone.

If you’re an immigrant, I’ll help you find resources.

If you’re a survivor, I’ll believe you.

All I ask is that you be with me, too.

'Some people when they have taken too much
and have been driven beyond the point of endurance,
simply crumble and give up.
There are others,
though they are not many,
who will for some reason always be —UNCONQUERABLE.
You meet them in time of war
and also in time of peace.
They have an indomitable spirit,
and nothing, and i mean nothing,
neither pain nor torture
nor threat of death,
will cause them to give up.'

...22... the number of military veterans that commits suicide EVERYDAY — #22.

1 #usveteran takes their own life every 65 minutes. .

... no matter how hard you try,
you will never be stranger
than what this world
considers normal.

...🌸 He wore bright pink pants with matching pink sneakers,
complimented by a vibrant multi-colored shirt, lime-green scarf, topped with a cool powder baby-blue jacket and equally colorful assortment of sparkling accessories that accentuate both of his hands. .

This is "Jimmy" a soft-spoken and kind man.
Though quiet he maybe, Jimmy embodied a calm confidence that exudes in the way he presents himself. .
.

He's one of the unwanted residents of #Skidrow, technically, he's homeless.
.
.

Despite being that, Jimmy is no "bum," he works hard everyday to collect disposed recyclables in the streets, he rummages through every trash bin in his area and sells it off at his local recycling center at the end of the day. Before this photograph was taken, I followed him for 9 blocks helping him go through garbage bins for salvageable materials to recycle. .
.

Though he didn't speak much throughout our meeting —his work ethic, altruistic demeanor and kindness towards his fellow street-dwellers— told me plenty. .
.

By witnessing Jimmy work,
No one could ever say to me that those who ends-up in the streets are afraid of hard work, for nobody worked harder than Jimmy that day to get so little in return.
.
.

Unfortunately to thrive & survive in a world like we have,
it would take more than just hard work...
.
.

Toughness is in the soul and spirit,
not in muscles and acting like a bully,

and

Softness is never weakness... it takes a lot of courage to stay delicate
in a world this cruel. .

You could ink yourself
until everyone knows
all the things you love.
You could wear uniforms
that gave you all the
authority in the world.
Lose weight
until there was nothing left.
Paint your face.
Suck in your gut.
But in the dark,
stripped down to your bones,
all that remains is #YOU. 💀

... but rarely do you ever tell people
about the true depths of your loneliness,
about how you feel more and more
alienated from your friends
each passing day
and you’re not sure how to fix it.
it seems like everyone is just better at living
than you are.

"I've decided to stick with love,
hate is too great a burden to bear."
.
.

I've heard and read this words many times,
But hearing it from somebody who I believe have all the reason in the world to 'hate'
always shakes me deep in my core. .

'...it was June,
and the world smelled of roses.
The sunshine was like powdered gold
over the rocky hillside...'

. . .
To wander is to always look ahead,
straight into the unknown horizon,
rarely one looks back to a place once
already explored & experienced.

This is Allan, the group-assigned "Captain" 🔱 of the crew of young men and women traveling across the Americas - North & South - with their fully-customized school bus #🚍, that serves as both their home and "space ship" #🚀 — in search of new adventures and more meaning into their existence. .
.

Allan is not the type to speak much about himself, well he didn't have to, because his friends does it for him. Amongst the group, he's the most trusted go-to-driver when it comes to treacherous roads and conditions,
like that one time when Allan pulled them into safety after their brakes malfunctioned while they're going downhill on a curvy road on the side of a mountain. .
.

He is also their engineer, responsible for making sure all the mechanical parts of their bus is in good running condition. Not an easy task taking care of an old rectangular steel that trudges thousands of miles per year.

They go to the Northern American states during summer ☀️and they head towards South America whenever the frost ❄️ is about to come. And they go south as far as Guatemala. ⛰
.
.

They make & sell art, work odd jobs, play music in the streets, panhandle, worked in farms, they do anything they can to sustain the lifestyle they have chosen. .
.

Something valuable that I learn from them are; #🐚 They value time over money,
relationships over material things,
teamwork over power,
hope over fear,

and love over hate.
