I’ve been cruel sometimes hard to work with and ungrateful, however many of you in this space have actually given me a 2nd opportunity, and I believe that’s when we’re at our best, when, when we Support each other, not when we cancel each other out for previous mistakes, however when we help each other to grow when we educate each other when we direct each other towards redemption, that is the very best of humanity.
I believe whether we’re talking about gender inequality or bigotry or queer rights or indigenous rights or animal rights, we’re. Talking about the fight against injustice.
I’ve been cruel at times hard to work with and ungrateful, but so numerous of you in this room have actually given me a second possibility, and I believe that’s when we’re at our best, when, when we Support each other, not when we cancel each other out for past errors, but when we help each other to grow when we inform each other when we assist each other towards redemption, that is the finest of humankind.”
