open invitation no. 43: dare to care

Dare to care. You might get hurt, but it is one way to fully live.

“Caring—about people, about things, about life—is an act of maturity.
—Tracy McMillan

What are the things you care about? Who are the people who have your heart? How do you dare to care? Caring is an act of maturity and an excellent writing topic.
