Each and every skeleton that has been pulled out of the closet to dance the tango has reminded someone, somewhere, that we are none of us alone. We've begun to shed light in the places kept previously in the dark because we are not afraid to share who we are with the rest of the world.

Real stories, real people, real stigmas broken down every single day.

That is power.

That is light.

That is healing.

We are The Band.

We are not afraid of who we are. We celebrate our flaws, our mental illnesses, our pasts, because we know without them, we wouldn't be who we are today.

Join me in celebrating Mental Health Awareness Month by sharing your story, here or on your own personal blog.

As one voice in a sea of blogs, we are small. As The Band, we are powerful.

We are not afraid.
