When I thought I could see, I blindly followed a flag and the government bodies holding it.
Now that I know I cannot see, I serve the founding documents and the people that evidence indicates this flag sometimes stands on.

I could not write until I discovered what love truly is, and I thought I had lost it.

My heart is complete knowing that in my life, my soul was illuminated by these beautiful light sources. Yet, simultaneously, my soul was restored by the light of Truth.
