People think your soul lives within your heart, but it lives in your brain.

“A sister just like you, I just want to let you know you mean the world to me. Only a heart as dear as yours would give so unselfishly. The many things you’ve done, all the times that you were there.

“Brain Injury is misunderstood by many people. You don’t just ‘get over’ Brain Injury. It affects your whole life, your relationships, who you are as a person. Nothing is the same anymore.

Especially on those very bad days. Be kind.
