This has been a persistent theme in my thoughts on many social ills. Nothing is ever this simple, but everything has to start somewhere. If the foundation is rotten, all we build on top of it will crumble.
If we pass on our hatred and prejudices to a new generation the way we pass on our genes, all we can expect is more of what has already been. If we pass on new hatred and prejudice in the hope of change, the change we hope for will be perverted into something we don’t recognize. no change ever happens without partnership, and without sacrifice, but most of all positive change can never happen without love and compassion.
