If you ache when you see her weary hands beg for coins and hurt a bit when you notice that he has no audience. If you notice that despair lined her every feature and observe their efforts to hold onto each other despite their similar condition ---remember that feeling.
And when you’re ready--- urgently find ways to address that ache.
Find ways, other than forgetting, to heal your ache.
No More Excuses.
