#WednesdayWisdom: Now


I’ve always thought the beauty and the interesting bits were in our differences. I’m fascinated by the nuance of lives different from mine; it’s one of the reasons I so love to travel.

Now those differences are used as handholds to tear us apart, to isolate us, to break us into smaller chunks much easier for authoritarian regimes to swallow. Make us each independently concerned for our very survival.

Crowbar the fissures.

Our days have been quite chilling up until now, but I fear worse days ahead. So this is what I ask of you.

Remember that there are others also fearing for their futures, for their safety. Remember that differences are not a marker of competition but of humanity expressed in another way.

Remember we owe one another our support. Remember we need to see the obstacles ahead, not only our own, but those faced by others as well.

Or those obstacles will take root, broaden, and imprison us all.

Take the time to let someone else know you see them today. Hope your day goes well.
