A Hidden Reminder Found in Florida, Forever Imprinted In My Mind

“All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveler is unaware.” – Martin Buber

If given the opportunity to travel, where would you go?  For some of us it is the mountains, for others it is a lake, and yet for others it may be the ocean.   For me, it was Key West.  Using the travel voucher I received from Linda and Steven Rivelis, I had the opportunity to do something that I had always dreamed of.

While in the Keys, I had the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities, such as kayaking the mangroves, snorkeling the coral reefs, drinking straight from a coconut, and visiting the Southernmost Point in the United States.  While I adored the islands from the moment I crossed that first bridge, I fell in love with Key West when I learned about its philosophy of “One Human Family”.  This philosophy reminds us that we are all different, we are all unique, and we are all equal.  Upon seeing that painting on the sidewalk, I was reminded that we must embrace one another as we are, for we are all travelers in this world – none greater than the other.
