"There should be no discrimination against languages people speak,skin color or religion"-Malala Yousafzai,Survivor of a shot to her by Al-Qaeda for wanting equity in education for girls
Recently I have noticed a forgetting of the things that matter and in noticing this I have noticed I have realized some conversations that matter seem to be dodged a lot within society.Why is this?I am going to tell you my reasoning on that at the end of this blog but in forgetting those conversations that I feel matter a lot to our society.I want to bring them to our existence so that we as human species can remember and observe these issues are still very fresh in our discussion as well as admit they should not end.What are these conversations.They are those uncomforatble ones we are unwilling but our humanity calls them to us at the moment.I recount them now:
If we are all made in the image of the Eternal Source why do we not see all the colors of human existence as equitable?why do we choose to oppress a person because of their skin?Why are those of a race holding more privilege not sharing their privilege?Racial Prejudice still exists let us all not rest in denial anymore of this.
As a gay man I notice this a lot.Like just because i'm a gay man I have to be put into some box of sensitivity and mocked for who I am attracted too.The moment a person finds this out they label me see it as some disability of my human existence.I am told to tone it down but I will not choose to tone it down.Sexuality Discrimination still exists let us observe such in our society that it is still present worthy off discussion.
Just because someone is a women or a transgendered individual why are their laws that still exist that make such individuals less of who they are.Why can't a woman be p[aid just as equal as I am as a man?why does a Transgendered or Queergendered not welcome in certain bathrooms?Obviously Gender Bias still exists and is a conversation that needs to continue among humanity.
I as a young adult am treated sometimes as if my experience does not matter at all by those older than me?Why is this?One's age dos not negate their experience whether young or old.Ageism does exist and should not be denied.
In the faith gambit it seems as if faiths should look at themselves as people experiencing the same truth just recognizing it in different ways.Us versus them should not exist but the universal message of all should be realized.Religious discrimination exists one faith is not better than the other we should discuss those truths that unite us all.
Why are people homeless it is not because they have chosen that life but because those who have the means choose not to use them for the betterment of the life of those who are homeless.No more should a person starve each should have according to their need.Economic Inequality does exist it's not a far of thing it's in front of us everyday.
I affirmed that I would tell you the reason why I think many are dodging these uncomfortable conversations.The answer is simple we as a human race have forgotten our humanity the basic precept present across the board is the simple teaching"Love your neighbor as yourself"Why are we choosing to forget this simple common practice of our humanity?We fail ourselves if we don't have these conversations.A Zion is not built and a horrible world is created.Let's continue to remember and observe these conversations that matter.
Questions to ponder:
Why do you think some are dodging having these conversations that matter?
Why do you fear personally having the uncomfortable conversation that should be had?
Do you personally fear a better day for human society?
