OK. This is a loaded question: should we tolerate differences in society, or should we draw a line in the sand and dare others to cross it at their peril? That seems to be the ethos of this year (2022).
As we have seen time and time again, ‘the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world.’ In reality, those of the other sex want to wrest it from their gentle (but strong) hands to raise the next generation!
Three things come to mind: 1) opinions are tolerated, until they disagree with your own; 2) children follow their parents’ lead until adolescence; and 3) the world wide web has created a global village.
We are a bundle of contradictions. But how do we reconcile these opposing sides?
By being tolerant, honestly.
When we love our neighbour as our self, we begin to understand where they are coming from.
This is a binary world, after all else is said and done.
Bless you all on your journey around the sun for another year.
