Something about new things. Whether it be new clothes, new toys, new relationships, new homes…that sort of thing. There are many of us seeking new opportunities and perhaps a new life altogether. It’s akin to having a new world to seek all these things in. It’s important to know that with the new means leaving behind the old. Not easy if you ask me. It’s easier to start from a clean slate, from a new place. and a new perspective. The people in our lives that have come before and have left this world sought new things too. What does this mean of the older things? Everything old can be made new again and you can teach a old dog a new trick if given the chance.
Using a holy text to keep families apart because you are afraid of them is morally repugnant and evil. There is zero justification for it. Shame on those who are advancing it as policy of a sinister government.
Immigration is a complex issue but families should never be separated. What is happening is not what this country is made of. Now its becoming a shell of itself. Truly sad things are happening.
Without diversity, people who have traditionally not had a place at the table or opportunities to advance would still be on the outside looking in. Glass ceilings would not be shattered and women and minorities would be relegated to second class, second tier status. People who complain about diversity it seems want to keep things the way they were and to allow no one else to enjoy the advantages they have had throughout their lives.
No doubt I have benefited from my race and gender and I regret that others have not been afforded the same. It’s past time for a lot of things to happen for the least of these and maybe life should find a way for everyone to have equity, equality, life, liberty and happiness.
Theres a expectation of needing to climb a ladder to make everyone else think you are successful. But who really defines what success is? Perhaps its more grass roots and how you changed peoples lives for the better. If you can do more without a title then you are golden. I learned this the hard way but I am glad I am in a space/place to make a difference. Many average Jane’s and Joe’s have changed the world and have bloomed where they were planted.
It seems some folks enjoy being a total buzzkill when people try to dream about a better tomorrow. It’s like they want to be mired in the muck of life. Has the world stopped dreaming of possibilities in favor of a stark reality that makes the world a less better place. I am confident in saying that people deep down want something different but they have given up the notion it could actually happen, I think everything is possible we just need a change in attitude and perhaps latitude.
I’m a bit of an oddball but everyone seeks to belong to something that makes them feel a part of a group or community. Every person should have the freedom to be themselves and to be comfortable in that expression. Inclusion is a wonderful thing and being asked to be a part of a squad is something special. Life is too short to go it alone.
