The first step toward change is awareness. The second step is acceptance.
In an age of technology, information, and efficiency (for the most part), we are all made aware of the issues and celebrations of society, the ins and outs of what's going on in our towns and cities, as well as across the world.
Yes, there is brilliant goodness and righteousness in this world. But there are dark corners that we refuse to acknowledge, or simply ignore. A common mindset that we hold is that if there's something that we don't like, we ignore it, forget its existence, and hope it goes away on its own.
We are becoming more accepting as the years past, but there is no doubt that the stubborn mindset of rejecting others remains.
We are aware.
But we need to accept.
Let's work together for a kinder future.
