These Days


These days

It’s so difficult to utter a kind word

Let alone holding a forbidden hand

More even to choose a road less traveled

The Queen of people’s heart* is long dead.




*Throughout her life, Princess Diana was very active supporting many charities related to homeless and deprived children, drug abuse, and victims of HIV/AIDS. In 1987, she shocked many people when she publicly shook the hand of an AIDS patient.Recently Prince Harry founded Heads Together which aims to end the stigma surrounding mental health.  Source: link 1 & link 2
