Seeing Amel and Omar together for the first time in their Brooklyn home made me realize how two very different individuals can make a greater whole. How two people with different histories and personalities can beautifully complement each other. Amel is poised, decisive, focused. She is thoughtful and determined, and carefully selects everything around her. Omar seems at home in any environment, with a genuine laugh and a quiet, yet deep confidence that puts everyone at ease the minute they meet him. To see them interact was a lesson in how the right people can bring out all that is beautiful in each other. The right people can smooth our edges, can deepen our kindness, can uplift our soul and can expand our hearts. The right people can show us love. Thanks Amel and Omar.
