Worrying about what is on people's heads.
This weekend I came across a very racist sticker against Muslims, on one of the lights in our neighborhood. I took the sticker off, but it got me thinking again about what a silly thing it is too worry about what people have on their heads or that they worship in a different ways than I might when there are so many more important things we should be working together to fix. How about we talk about what is on peoples heads after we have addressed the wage gap for women, minorities and indigenous people? How about we get to that after we have ended child and indigenous poverty? How about we have that conversation when we have seriously addressed mental illness? Let's focus on what brings us together and what we can accomplish when we pool our resources.
