TEARING DOWN WALLS

Most people when considering prejudicial issues, erect walls. I also tend to do that, but as the wall rises, I know enough to examine it, while it’s still transparent enough to explore the issues surrounding the wall openly and honestly – not only from my own perspective, because that in itself defies transparency – but from the perspective of everyone else.

Being able to tear down one’s own wall of prejudice, meeting others, face to face, as equally worthy, with the reality of the facts at everyone’s disposal, makes all the difference in overcoming the fear that creates the prejudice.
