Listening through Friendship Benches

The most Beautiful People are those who

have known defeat, known suffering, known loss,

and have found their way out of the depths.

These persons have an understanding of life

that fills them with compassion and a deep loving concern.

Beautiful People

do not just happen.”

Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
