This post speaks volumes to me. I have never seen everything I have been struggling with in the past few months put so simply in one body of text. Your post speaks on everything i have wanted to see in humanity but have yet to. When you speak about how we are so different from one another, we can start thinking about ways that we should make it our priority to rebuild these bonds and relationships between people again. You are using the opposing force, the idea of the disconnect, to make us think and see that society has made our life’s activities into an endless routine of loving the hand that feeds us.
I’m writing these words knowing that people from all over the world are going to read them. People of all ages, ethnic and cultural backgrounds, of different religious beliefs. Most of them, I’ll never get a chance to meet. Most of them, I don’t know how they look like, what’s the thing they want most in this world, or what is it that they’re afraid of… most of them are perfect strangers to me.
Yet, simply by writing these words with these strangers in my mind, having the certainty that my words will reach them, they become a little bit more than strangers. They become human beings, just like myself, and that is one of life’s greatest achievements.
