It’s been two weeks, and boy have I got thoughts!
2020 has sure managed to start off in a rather… enchanting fashion if you ask me! First, I get some bad, but not surprising news, on the home front. Then the whole planet jumps into a mass panic about the Corona Virus.
Mind you; I haven’t heard anything about it being over here. That said, I do know it’s spreading fast and is already in a lot of countries, including where I have friends.
I wanted to take the time and tell you all to take reasonable precautions. Please don’t go around spreading more panic. That’s not going to help anybody!
Now, virus and whatnot aside, I have something else burning a hole in my tongue (and fingers!).
I am honestly sick and tired of reading about racism and bigotry and all the misplaced anger and prejudice.
If predators and prey can accept, bond, and love each other. Two species that were never meant to, if you listen to some people talk… Two species on opposite ends of the food chain, then why can’t we humans do it?
Caucasian, African, Middle Eastern, Asian.
Buddhist, Muslim, Christian, Jew, Wiccan.
Tall, short, blond, brunette.
Straight, Gay, Transgender, Pansexual.
WHO THE HELL CARES?!
We live. We breathe. We eat. We feel.
Then again, what do I know? I’m just a dumb black sheep dumped between two worlds. I couldn’t possibly understand what one or the other is like… oh, wait! That’s exactly what gives me the right to say it because I was raised in two very different cultures. I was taught to see both sides. To see both the good and the bad.
And guess what? Religion isn’t the bad guy, and it’s the few that use it to justify themselves. But that doesn’t mean everyone should be punished for it.
The same goes for a person’s skin color or sexual orientation. Neither of which is a choice! You don’t choose to be born! What you can choose is who makes you happy!
