Getting Real

I came across this passage today from the Velveteen Rabbit and it really touched me. Thought I would share.       “What is REAL? Does it hurt?” asked the Rabbit. “Sometimes,” said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful. “When you are Real you don’t mind being hurt.” “Does it happen all at…
