Sing From Your Heart

Photo taken by contributor Lakesh, a 36-year-old woman currently serving as a Peace Corps Volunteer. Her first experience with depression came through a relationship. It was filled with ups and downs, and both pockets of joy and memorable disappointments. The relationship has since ended but that experience has changed her perspective of mental illness. She will forever be grateful for the lessons they taught each other.

About this photo: “This little one belongs to a family of five street performers who work within the shopping district in Istanbul, Turkey. He reminded me of the importance of using our voices in the best and worst of times.”

  1. My goodness this brought a big smile to my face and heart. This is precious and a great message. If I may add to that I’d say, no matter how big or small your voice matters. I just wish I could hear that little boy!

    Thank you so much for sharing and bringing me a smile. 😀
