I am a stranger to you now, let me walk with you for a while. Because I have been where you are, and where you are about to go.  I have no answers.  I offer instead my hand, my heart, my listening ear, my time, and my experience…. So that one day, you can to turn to another and say:

I am a stranger to you now…."
