Maybe I don’t want you to be

Maybe I don’t want you to be injecting drugs, maybe I don’t want you to put your life at risk. But that doesn’t mean that I can’t accept that that’s what you’re doing with compassion, and then see how I can possibly be helpful to you.

Coffee cups

A coffee cup — we don’t think about coffee cups, but it’s much more interesting than one might think — a coffee cup is a device, which has a container and a handle. The handle enables you to hold it when the container is filled with hot liquid. Why is that important? Well, it enables you to drink coffee. But also, by the way, the coffee is hot, the liquid is sterile; you’re not likely to get cholera that way. So the coffee cup, or the cup with a handle, is one of the tools used by society to maintain public health.

Everyone makes mistakes

“Everyone makes mistakes. But some are considered only mistakes, while others are seen as evidence of moral depravity, weakness or inferiority. And many think that such people need saving”….” Cyndee Clay disagrees. “We don’t need to rescue or save people,” she says. “We only need to provide resources so that people can handle their own business.”
