I have come to realize we are all more similar than different. Our clothing may be different. We may have different shades of skin color. Use different money. Speak different languages. Some have plenty. Some not enough.

That person actually, is the only person in your community who will know how to enact the ceremony. Email that person about your concerns and your desire to help, and then hold your breath until they get back to you.

But what if you don’t know what you enjoy? Does anyone really know what would make them happy in life? I’m not sure I do.
