A personal reaction – unfiltered thoughts
I have often felt part of a minority. Not for the colour of my skin or sexual orientation, just to name common ‘reasons’ for exclusion and discrimination. The minority I feel part of is a minority of beliefs: it seems like a large part of the world does not share my most basic, fundamental beliefs about humans being one and that the world is better if we work together towards a better future for all.
My fears are, however, even greater than this. I worry about the world my kids will grow up in and inherit from us; I worry it will be xenophobic, intolerant, paranoid and divided. I worry it will be misinformed and easy to manipulate.
