These past four days at the Eliot House have been eye opening. Working with adults with mental illnesses has already changed the way we view all the people in this world. After talking to these people, we realized that they are not much different than us. Their abilities to think and feel are no less shrouded than ours. Experiencing the way they live their lives each day reminds us of “b’tzelem Elohim”, the thought that every human is created in God’s image. Therefore, we are all a part of God and live equally.
